Earlier this week, research was published in the journal, Nature Microbiology, which has newly published maps that reveal, for the first time, where anthrax poses global risks to people, livestock and wildlife.
The maps are the result of 15 years of data collection covering 70 countries.
Joining me today to discuss this work and it’s importance is the lead author, Jason Blackburn, PhD. Dr. Blackburn is with the Spatial Epidemiology and Ecology Research Lab, Department of Geography at the University of Florida at Gainesville. He is also with the Emerging Pathogens Institute at UF.
