STEM Education Enriching Knowledge Series: Mathematical and Statistical Modelling in Public Health Using Genetic Data (New)
Hong Kong Space Museum Lecture Hall
Genetic data have provided new directions to understand the diseases for better public health protection. However, the complexity of genetic data poses challenges for appropriate and thorough analysis. In the seminar, the speaker will introduce some usages of mathematical and statistical modelling on the genetic data for understanding disease mechanisms, particularly focus on the infectious disease investigation. Application to the study of COVID-19 outbreak will be covered.
