Developing estimates of Lyme disease risk by simulating blacklegged tick populations

Graph: Developing estimates of Lyme disease risk by simulating blacklegged tick populations, by Queen's researcher Liam Dowling. Graph depicts Lyme disease cases with probability of infectionMy project seeks to find if simulating blacklegged tick populations are able to accurately predict Lyme disease cases not only in Kingston, but all across Canada. The results of this research could provide potential insight for  Public Health Authorities and the general public on how to best prevent Lyme disease.
