Objetivos:

Capacitar os alunos a analisar redes complexas, com vistas às aplicações em epidemiologia veterinária.

Objectives:

To enable students to analyze complex networks with a view to applications in veterinary epidemiology.

Justificativa:

Em anos recentes, a análise de redes complexas (e teoria dos grafos) passou a ser utilizada nas áreas biológicas, agrárias e de saúde com crescente intensidade. Esta ferramenta tem grande aplicação na análise de sistemas de relacionamentos entre entidades, seja uma rede de computadores conectados, um grupo de pessoas com interações sociais, difusão de informação entre animais, comércio de animais entre propriedades, comércio de animais entre países, etc. Especificamente, a ferramenta tem grande aplicação em epidemiologia, por permitir entender a estrutura de contatos entre indivíduos ou grupos de indivíduos, pelos quais uma doença é transmitida.

Rationale:

In recent years, the analysis of complex networks (and graph theory) has been used with increasing intensity in the biological, agricultural and health areas. This tool has wide application in the analysis of systems of relationships between entities, be it a network of connected computers, a group of people with social interactions, the dissemination of information between animals, trade in animals between farms, trade in animals between countries, etc. Specifically, the tool has wide application in epidemiology, as it allows us to understand the structure of contacts between individuals or groups of individuals, through which a disease is transmitted.

Conteúdo:

Redes complexas: conceitos e definições. Extração de rede a partir de um banco de dados de trânsito de animais. Cálculo (ou estimativa) de parâmetros de rede. Modelos de redes complexas (regulares, Poisson, pequeno mundo, livres de escala) e geração de redes aleatórias. Modelos epidêmicos em redes complexas: dinâmica e controle (SI, SIS, SIR, etc.). Identificação de comunidades. Lei de Pareto, Assortatividade e Paradoxo da Amizade. Aplicações de análise de redes em Epidemiologia.

Content:

Complex networks: concepts and definitions. Network extraction from an animal movement database. Calculating (or estimating) network parameters. Complex network models (lattice, Poisson, small-world, scale-free) and random network generation. Epidemic models in complex networks: dynamics and control (SI, SIS, SIR, etc.). Identification of communities. Pareto's Law, Assortativity and the Friendship Paradox. Applications of network analysis in Epidemiology.

Forma de Avaliação:

A nota final da disciplina será calculada a partir da fórmula: Nota final = avaliação do trabalho final A nota final será transformada em conceito final, conforme: - Conceito A: Excelente - de 8,0 a 10; - Conceito B: Bom - de 7,0 a 7,9; - Conceito C: Regular - de 6,0 a 6,9; - Conceito R: Reprovado por nota, menor de 6,0 e/ou por frequência, quando menor que 75%.

Type of Assessment:

The final grade for the course will be calculated using the formula: Final grade = evaluation of the final assignment The final grade will be transformed into a final concept, as follows: - Concept A: Excellent - from 8.0 to 10; - Concept B: Good - from 7.0 to 7.9; - Concept C: Fair - from 6.0 to 6.9; - Concept R: Fail by grade, less than 6.0 and/or by frequency, when less than 75%.

Observação:

1. A disciplina será 100% no sistema não presencial. 2. As aulas serão realizadas de forma síncrona, sendo gravadas, e o conteúdo disponibilizado possibilitando ao aluno assistir o conteúdo posteriormente. 3. Conteúdos complementares serão disponibilizados no ambiente virtual de aprendizagem. 4. A plataforma a ser utilizada será o Moodle (e-Disciplinas). As aulas virtuais serão realizadas no Google Meet. 5. A interação entre o aluno e os docentes se dará de modo online, durante as aulas, e por meio de email. 6. A frequência será determinada pela presença do aluno nas aulas virtuais. 7. É obrigatória a utilização de câmera e microfone. 8. A avaliação será realizada através de trabalho final e exercícios. 9. A universidade tem instalações equipadas com computadores que garantem aos alunos os meios de acessar o curso remotamente na indisponibilidade de meios próprios. 10. A disciplina utilizará os softwares R e RStudio.

Notes/Remarks:

1. Classes will be 100% online. 2. Classes will be held synchronously, being recorded and the recording made available, allowing the student to watch it later. 3. Complementary activities will be made available on the virtual learning environment. 4. The platform to be used will be Moodle (e-Disciplinas). Virtual classes will be held on Google Meet. 5. The interaction between the student and the teachers will take place online, during classes, and through email. 6. Attendance will be determined by the student's attendance at the virtual classes. 7. The use of camera and microphone is mandatory. 8. Assessment will be through a final assignment and exercises. 9. The university has facilities equipped with computers that guarantee students the means to access the course remotely, should their own means not be available. 10. The course will use R and RStudio software.
