Estimating a novel stochastic model for within-field disease dynamics of banana bunchy top virus via approximate Bayesian computation [article]

Abhishek Varghese, Christopher Drovandi, Antonietta Mira, Kerrie Mengersen
2019 biorxiv/medrxiv   pre-print
The Banana Bunchy Top Virus (BBTV) is one of the most economically important vector-borne banana diseases throughout the Asia-Pacific Basin and presents a significant challenge to the agricultural sector  ...  A stochastic network-based Susceptible-Infected model has been created which simulates the spread of BBTV across the subsections of a banana plantation, parameterising nodal recovery, neighbouring and  ...  Acknowledgments The authors would like to acknowledge the support of Hort Innovation in providing the data required for this project, and Barry Sullivan, Dr. John Thomas and Dr.  ...

Bunchy Top disease of Banana is one of the most devastating diseases caused by Banana Bunchy Top Virus (BBTV) that results in a significant loss of yield, stunting and bunchy appearance of leaves.  ...  Bananas are affected by four knowns, relatively wellcharacterized viruses such as banana bunchy top virus, banana streak virus, cucumber mosaic virus and banana bract mosaic virus.  ...  Patients with double HPV infection and more than double infection had a significantly shorter disease free survival compared to those with single HPV infection.  ...

The agreed major aims were to provide an overview of current modelling approaches and their strengths and weaknesses for risk assessment, and to develop and test a system for risk assessors to select appropriate  ...  A cluster analysis on how these models were formulated allowed us to identify eight distinct major modelling strategies that were differentiated by the types of pests they were used for and the ways in  ...  For example, we developed a computationally-efficient approximation to local population growth, and implemented 'stratified' dispersal with deterministic local diffusion and stochastic long-distance jumps  ...
