Framtidens epidemiologi av växtsjukdomar

The course is organized around the workshop "Future Plant Disease Epidemiology" at Ultuna, 13-14 September 2017. The themes of the workshop are; "Molecular epidemiology", "Statistical models in plant disease epidemiology" and "Plant disease epidemiology in 2050" (for detailed program, see workshop web-page: www.slu.se/plant-epidemiology).

Before the workshop, the students will read a selection of papers from the keynote speakers. The students are expected to participate in the workshop and in a half-day seminar the day after the workshop. After the workshop and seminar, the students should write a 1-2 page reflection on what they learned during the course and if something could be applied within their projects.
