How Does Real Time Disease Surveillance Work?


The UC Davis' Disease BioPortal is a realtime disease surveillance suite that can help researchers understand and track the issues around human and animal disease outbreaks.
The dynamics that foster disease emergence and transmission world-wide continue to expand in complexity and scope, thus creating unprecedented new challenges to solving local, regional, and global problems of animal and human health and to mitigating their social, economic, and political consequences.
Dr. Barbara Brito, Plum Island Animal Disease Center, University of California, Davis, provides an update on this platform.
