OutbreakTools defines the new formal class obkData which can be used to store any case-base outbreak data, and provides summaries for these objects, alongside a range of functions for subsetting and data manipulation. It implements a range of graphics for visualising timelines, maps, contact networks and genetic analyses. It also includes a simple case-base outbreak simulation tool.
