About Tim Heupink

I am an evolutionary geneticist with an interest in Next Generation Sequencing and real-time evolutionary dynamics across space and time. I have worked worked on longitudinal DNA datasets from a wide variety of organisms, ranging from extinct birds to humans, and studied the processes that shaped their genetic diversity. I now apply these principles to study tuberculosis as part of the Center for Whole Genome Sequencing of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (CWGSMTB). I works on longitudinal data sets to study the evolutionary dynamics of MTB within individuals and populations. The aim of this research is to get a better understanding of MTB’s evolution in hyper-endemic settings and genetic response to different interventions.
