Title : Genetic and Environmental COntributions to Malaria prevalence in SEnegal Côte d’Ivoire

Project type : Development Project (2 years)

Abstract : This project should participate in the implementation of methods and tools for statistical analysis of environmental, climatic and genetic data and their associations with epidemiological and parasitological data, while guaranteeing the validity and reliability of the results, in a context of non-independent repetitions of observations for the same subject. In the African population, there are fairly strong kinship ties and the longitudinal monitoring carried out for several years in the study areas has made it possible to acquire repeated and correlated observations that must be taken into account. In addition to these problems, this project will take into account the environmental and climatic specificity of African countries in the diagnosis of infectious diseases which is an important aspect in current research.

Research themes in digital science: Genetic data, malaria prevalence, econometric, health economics
