In Great Britain (GB) alone, controlling bTB costs in the region of £100 million annually, with the current control scheme seemingly unable to stop the inexorable spread of infection. One aspect that may be driving the epidemic is evolution of the causative pathogen, Mycobacterium bovis. To understand the underlying genetic changes that may be responsible for this evolution, we performed a comprehensive genome-level analyses of 4 M. bovis strains that encompass the main molecular types of the pathogen circulating in GB.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||BioMed Central||Keywords:||Bovine tuberculosis;Mycobacterium bovis;Microarray;Transcript;SNP;Antisense;Macrophage||DOI:||10.1186/1471-2164-14-710||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
