    Exploring factors shaping antibiotic resistance patterns in Streptococcus pneumoniae during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic

    Aleksandra Kovacevic, David RM Smith ... Lulla Opatowski
    The mathematical modeling approach disentangles the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on antibiotic resistance in Streptococcus pneumoniae in the community setting and identifies the three most plausible driving mechanisms responsible for the observed trends in invasive isolates and pneumococcal carriage.

    Effect of an enhanced public health contact tracing intervention on the secondary transmission of SARS-CoV-2 in educational settings: The four-way decomposition analysis

    Olivera Djuric, Elisabetta Larosa ... The Reggio Emilia Covid-19 Working Group
    Prompt contact tracing (testing at the beginning instead of at the end of isolation period) of individuals with COVID-19 in the community reduces delays in contact tracing, increases identification of source of infection, and reduces transmission rates in educational settings.

    Region of Attainable Redaction, an extension of Ellipse of Insignificance analysis for gauging impacts of data redaction in dichotomous outcome trials

    David Robert Grimes
    Region of Attainable Redaction analysis allows scientists to estimate the potential impacts of redaction in biomedical science, helping to uncover potentially spurious or non-robust results.

    Antigenic strain diversity predicts different biogeographic patterns of maintenance and decline of antimalarial drug resistance

    Qixin He, John K Chaillet, Frédéric Labbé
    A novel compartment model identifies the impact of malaria strain diversity on biogeographic drug resistance patterns, supported by empirical evidence.
