Infectious Disease Dynamics

The coalescent was developed in the context of population genetics to infer population-level parameters from genetic data. It describes the effects of population size and demography on the genetic relationships among individuals in an evolving population. Here, I discuss how to relate the coalescent to inference of infectious disease dynamics. I cover mathematical theory, as well as statistical inference. I also discuss possibilities for future developments in joint inference using epidemiological and genetic data.
