[…] in more than 70% of infected persons for years, which explains limited availability of genetic data from outbreaks. further improvement of molecular surveillance using novel technologies, like global hepatitis outbreak and surveillance technology (ghost) (longmire et al. in this issue), is required to develop advanced approaches for accurate tracking of viral transmissions., stochastic […]

[…] in python and cython. although all the programs are available upon request, they are part of our recently developed web system for the advanced molecular detection of hcv transmissions, the global hepatitis outbreak and surveillance technology (ghost, which will be described elsewhere). the web system includes the analytical methods described in this article, improving the accuracy […]
