Bill Hanage

Bill Hanage

Associate Professor
Center for Communicable Disease Dynamics, Department of Epidemiology

Dr. Hanage is interested in bacterial evolution, which his lab investigates using modern population genomic methods, applied to many different pathogens. To understand the variation we observe in pathogen populations, we need theory to explain what we expect under different evolutionary histories, and the lab actively works to develop these methods with a particular focus on recombination and horizontal gene transfer, which has the ability to transfer genetic material encoding…
