Brief description This project aims at improving public health capacity to limit the spread of infectious diseases in hospital and community settings. The multi-disciplinary team of investigators will link epidemiological data with the finest resolution data from bacterial genomes in order to pinpoint events of infection transmission between individuals. Two high-burden pathogens (golden staph and food-borne Salmonella) will be used as exemplars of infectious diseases with different biology and modes of spread.
