More m tuberculosis facts l.jpg

More M. tuberculosis facts

  • According to CDC, 1/3 of the world’s population are infected with TB.

  • Each year, nearly 9 million people around the worldbecome sick with TB and almost 2 million die from illness caused by M. tuberculosis

  • TB is the primary cause of death of people who are HIV infected.

  • Some strains are multi-drug resistant

  • Most common strains lead to respiratory and lung disease, some strains can also affect brain (meningitis), liver, and other organs

M tuberculosis genome l.jpg

M. tuberculosis genome

  • Over 70 identified strains

    • First sequenced was H36Rv: 4,411, 529 bp

    • T46:4,347,699 bp

    • Average bp = approximately 4.4 Mbp

  • 4183 Genes

  • 1 chromosome

  • Large genome for a bacteria, slightly smaller than E. coli

M tuberculosis genome research l.jpg

M. tuberculosis genome research

  • First complete sequence project in 1998 by Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute. (whole genome shotgun sequencing method).

  • (Fleishman, et al, 2002) Genetic variation between strains was more than expected, including long sequence polymorphism.

  • (Caws, et al, 2008) Both the host and the bacterial genome affect the disease process. There are specific strains adapted to specific human populations


Why did i choose this m tuberculosis l.jpg

Why did I choose this M. tuberculosis?

  • Understanding of M. tuberculosis makes better drug development possible. Successful drug therapy for this disease could benefit millions of people.

  • Bioinformatics play a key role in comparing the huge variety of strains of this bacteria in addition to the sequencing process itself.
