Tuberculosis, responsible for nearly two million deaths each year, is caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB). Researchers from the Institute of Systems Biology in collaboration with Seattle BioMed have undertaken a comprehensive approach centered around the strengths of systems biology to identify adaptive regulatory mechanisms employed by MTB.

In a study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), researchers from the Institute for Systems Biology and Seattle BioMed identified the protein phosphotyrosine post-translational modifications critical to the growth of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb), a pathogen that causes the highly infectious disease tuberculosis (TB).
