Use of Whole Genome Sequencing Data for a First in Silico Specificity Evaluation of the RT-qPCR Assays Used for SARS-CoV-2 Detection.

December 2019. COVID-19 cases are confirmed by the detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA in biological samples by RT-qPCR. However, limited numbers of SARS-CoV-2 genomes were available when the first RT-qPCR methods ...

Residential green space and medication sales for childhood asthma: A longitudinal ecological study in Belgium

Methods: Asthma prevalence was estimated from sales data of reimbursed medication for obstructive airway disease (OAD) prescribed to children between 2010 and 2014, aggregated at census tract level (n ...

An evaluation of species distribution models to estimate tree diversity at genus level in a heterogeneous urban-rural landscape

methods to model tree diversity at genus level based on environmental covariates and presence point data. We aimed to identify the drivers and suitable methods for urban and rural tree diversity models in ...

An evaluation of species distribution models to estimate tree diversity at genus level in a heterogeneous urban-rural landscape

diversity data necessary to investigate such associations are often missing. Here, we evaluate two methods to model tree diversity at genus level based on environmental covariates and presence point data. We ...
