Disinfection against viruses - what do people want to know?

Hi all I'm a student of equine science at the university of limerick, Ireland. I'm currently writing up my final year project and was interested to know what information people would like to learn from a project like mine.

The title is 'Virucidal efficacy of common disinfectants against equine viruses' - I've tested 3 disinfectants against 3 viruses and can tell particularly which ones work better and how conditions affect how well they work. The basic take home message will definitely be - pre-clean! I'm sure most knew this already but I went to the trouble of proving it in a lab!

I'm writing up my literature review and introduction (well it;s drafted for months but tidying it up now.

So what would people like to know; I'm already answering questions such as how long these viruses survive in the environment, routes of infections, modes of action of disinfectants, factors affecting disinfectant efficacy etc

If you can think of anything else please let me know - I want this project to also be a practical guide and informative for all horse owners
