Die-off of E. coli and enterococci in dairy cowpats
(American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, 2008)
E. coli and enterococci re-growth and decay patterns in cowpats applied to pasturelands were monitored during the spring, summer fall, and winter First-order approximations were used to determine die-off rate coefficients ...
A Statistical Framework for the Adaptive Management of Epidemiological Interventions
Background: Epidemiological interventions aim to control the spread of infectious disease through various mechanisms, each carrying a different associated cost. Methodology: We describe a flexible statistical framework for ...
Bayesian QTL mapping using skewed Student-tdistributions
In most QTL mapping studies, phenotypes are assumed to follow normal distributions. Deviations from this assumption may lead to detection of false positive QTL. To improve the robustness of Bayesian QTL mapping methods, ...
A Model to Predict the Impact of Specification Changes on Chloride-Induced Corrosion Service Life of Virginia Bridge Decks
(Virginia Center for Transportation Innovation and Research, 2002-10)
A model to determine the time to first repair and subsequent rehabilitation of concrete bridge decks exposed to chloride deicer salts that recognizes and incorporates the statistical nature of factors affecting the corrosion ...
