about this item

The experts at the University of Florida’s Emerging Pathogens Institute (EPI) make it their mission answering baffling questions such as how is a pig-borne disease transmitted in a Muslim country, what kinds of parasites do Florida ticks carry and how has a cholera strain from Nepal evolved in Haiti? The Disease Detectives takes you inside the EPI, a center of high-tech labs and high-speed computers where more than 200 investigators, including geographers, pediatricians, epidemiologists, and even ecologists, join forces to study and combat pathogens that cause diseases in plants, animals, and humans—from salmonella in tomatoes to African swine fever to HIV/AIDS. Gatorbytes highlight for the intellectually curious the world of innovative research happening at the University of Florida. Written by professional journalists, Gatorbytes feature the top research and preeminence work being conducted at the University of Florida, written in a way that’s easy to understand.
