Product title :

The genomics of mycobacteria

Author(s) : M.N. Viale, M.J. Zumárraga, F.R. Araújo, A.M. Zarraga, A.A. Cataldi, M.I. Romano & F. Bigi

Summary :

The species Mycobacterium bovis and Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis are the causal agents, respectively, of tuberculosis and paratuberculosis in animals. Both mycobacteria, especially M. bovis, are also important to public health because they can infect humans. In recent years, this and the impact of tuberculosis and paratuberculosis on animal production have led to significant advances in knowledge about both pathogens and their host interactions. This article describes the contribution of genomics and functional genomics to studies of the evolution, virulence, epidemiology and diagnosis of both these pathogenic mycobacteria.
