Global Sensitivity Analysis of a Model for Cyprinid Herpes Virus 3 as a Biocontrol Agent of Common Carp

We will work in the context of a larger mathematical modelling project on predicting the impact of a deliberate release of Cyprinid Herpes Virus 3 (CyHV-3) in Australia as a biocontrol agent of invasive common carp (Cyprinus carpio). The rapid development of host resistance is a prime concern that has the potential to render CyHV-3 ineffective in the long term and would allow carp populations to recover from any initial mortality events caused by the virus. We will contribute to mathematical modelling that seeks to predict the time-scale over which host resistance is likely to develop.
