Regulatory Networks of Tuberculosis

Regulatory Networks of Tuberculosis

Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) is the bacterium that causes tuberculosis, a disease which kills one person every 30 seconds. Its success as a human pathogen is largely due to its ability to alter gene expression and adapt to the complex host environment within which it resides. Scientists at ISB and Seattle Biomed to track gene expression in MTB by constructing a gene regulatory network model.
