Below is a bibliography with the key academic papers that were used in the development of MDAST.  These papers either informed the model structure in MDAST, or informed parameter values.  It should be pointed out that the structure of the underlying transmission model is heavily based on Griffin, Hollingsworth, et al. (2010), and we recommend users look at this paper to understand many of the details of MDAST.
