Title: Genetic and environmental contributions to malaria prevalence in Senegal and Côte d'Ivoire.
Type of project: Development project (2 years)
The aim of this project is to develop methods and tools for the statistical analysis of environmental, climatic and genetic data, and their associations with epidemiological and parasitological data, while ensuring the validity and reliability of the results, in a context of non-independent repetition of observations for the same subject. In the African population, kinship links are fairly strong, and the longitudinal follow-up carried out over several years in the study areas has enabled us to acquire repeated and correlated observations that need to 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 of current research.
