Disease Data Analysis Tools for Managers

Researchers at USGS and specifically at the National Wildlife Health Center are working on developing new statistical and mathematical techniques and packaging them within user-friendly tools.

Some examples of new tools in development are web applications to analyze and interpret complex data, assess risk of future or ongoing disease outbreaks, estimate the effects of disease on individuals, populations, and ecosystems, and evaluate potential management solutions.
