Whole genome sequence (WGS) data could transform our ability to attribute individuals to source populations. However, methods that effectively mine these data are yet to be developed. We present a minimal multilocus distance (MMD) method which rapidly deals with these large data sets as well as methods for optimally selecting loci. This was applied on WGS data to determine the source of human campylobacteriosis, the geographical origin of diverse biological species including humans and proteomic...

Objective To determine modifiable factors associated with poor quality of life (QoL) in patients with axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA). Methods Analysis of data from the British Society for Rheumatology Biologics Register in Ankylosing Spondylitis (BSRBR-AS) and validation of a previous model using data from 1810 patients with axSpA recruited during 2012–2017. Data collected included clinical and patient-reported measures. QoL was assessed using the Ankylosing Spondylitis Quality of Life (ASQoL) ...

Genetic variation in an infectious disease pathogen can be driven by ecological niche dissimilarities arising from different host species and different geographical locations. Whole genome sequencing was used to compare E. coli O157 isolates from host reservoirs (cattle and sheep) from Scotland and to compare genetic variation of isolates (human, animal, environmental/food) obtained from Scotland, New Zealand, Netherlands, Canada and the USA. Nei’s genetic distance calculated from core genome si...

Abstract This study was conducted to analyse the current practices used by the Scottish smoked salmon industry that will affect the likelihood of Listeria monocytogenes contamination in products. Sixteen visits to smoked salmon premises were conducted between June and November 2011, interviews were carried out based on a questionnaire. The results indicate that most processors carry out appropriate food safety practices, but some improvements are needed in order to minimize the risk of Listeria ...

A framework of general factors for infectious disease emergence was made operational for Campylobacter utilising explanatory variables including time series and risk factor data. These variables were generated using a combination of empirical epidemiology, case-case and case-control studies, time series analysis, and microbial sub-typing (source attribution, diversity, genetic distance) to unravel the changing/emerging aetiology of human campylobacteriosis. The study focused on Scotland between ...
