The workshop will meet concurrently with PLP 6905 (Epidemiology and Data Science; syllabus here) for parts of the semester, but has different assignments.

In this course we will develop and publish tools for rapid disease risk assessment and mitigation planning for crop production systems at the national or regional level.  These tools will help countries develop their strategies for effective management of crop disease, as well as invasive pest management, as building blocks in the development of a global surveillance and mitigation system for crop disease.  We are developing ‘meta-tools’ in the sense that national programs can use these meta-tools to create their own tools for evaluating risk and mitigation strategies.
