Description Usage Format Author(s)

Description

Dataset simulated using an agent based model with a spatially heterogeneous population structure. Infectious agents were introduced resulting in agent to agent transmission. The distance between successive cases in a transmission chain were randomly drawn from a uniform distribution U(0,100). Each infectious agent resulted in transmissions to two other agents after a delay of 15 days, reflecting the generation time of dengue. There are 11 transmission chains, each with a different genotype. The genotypes are subdivided into four serotypes. 500 randomly selected individuals from the underlying population also included.

Format

Matrix with five columns representing the X and Y coordinates of infected individuals, the time of infection, the genotype of the infecting pathogen and the serotype of the infecting pathogen. Individuals representative from the underlying population have '-999'for time, genotype and serotype.
