Determination of the association between livestock systems and influenza prevalence and diversity in swine, Cambodia

This project aims to characterize the prevalence and genetic diversity of influenza viruses in pigs across various modes and stages of pig production in Cambodia, in to relation to pig densities, movements, and interspecies interactions. We will develop mathematical models to simulate transmission of influenza in Cambodia's pig sector, and explore the potential impact of changing livestock practices on risk of zoonotic transmission and pandemic emergence.
