The Disease Emergence and Richness in Primates team uses existing databases to quantify parasite richness across primates and to identify ecological predictors of parasitism. By integrating phylogenetic generalized least squares regression and network based approaches, the team ultimately aims to predict missing interactions between primates and parasites, which, combined with exploring ecological predictors, will provide better capabilities for identifying emerging infectious diseases in humans.
