​​​​​Research: Myc​obacteriology


The mycobacteriology research group is comprised of 4 teams who work closely together with the common goal of advancing our understanding of Mycobacterium tuberculosis evolution, pathogenesis, drug resistance and host-pathogen interactions. Our research is underpinned by cutting-edge genomic, transcriptomic, lipidomic and proteomic technologies; these are integrated using advanced computational biology approaches. Our work is facilitated by an extensive collection of well-characterised clinical isolates of M. tuberculosis. ​
