Poster 2: Jacob Baldauf – Enhancing Transmission Models of Covid-19 with Genomic Data

Faculty mentor: Lindsay Keegan

Phylogenetic trees are one of many tools used to understand a virus’s evolution. Phylogenetic trees allow researchers to understand how the virus spread from one population to another. Using covid-19 RNA sequences, researchers have created the evolutionary tree of covid-19. We created a dynamic simulation study to model the covid-19 pandemic. Using this simulation, we will investigate what information can be learned from phylogenetic trees regarding virus transmission.
