Development and testing of Operational Models of Bovine Tuberculosis in British Cattle and Badgers - Phases III & IV

Institutions
University of Glasgow
Start date
2016
End date
2017
Objective
Phase III Objectives:1. Compare TBMI to other TB models (EBP & BoTMEW)2. Improve model robustness 3. Include pre- and post- movement testing4. Implement a simple badger model5. Prepare documentation for model transfer into APHAPhase IV objectives (subject to review March 3017):1. Complete model comparisons2. Develop predictive cattle movement models to model large scale changes in movement, e.g. to restrict movement of cattle away from vaccinated areas, preventing them from moving into unvaccinated areas.3. Ensure model robustness considering updates to the model since phase II. 4. Prepare documentation for model transfer into APHA
