Genome-based Mycobacterium Tuberculosis Variation Database

Comparative genomics of Mycobacterium tuberculosis clinical strains spread in Russia – is one of the research projects conducted at Theodosius Dobzhansky Center for Genome Bioinformatics. We are studying genomic signatures associated with M. tuberculosis clinical and microbiological features.

A Database of M. tuberculosis Genome Variations (GMTV) developed by our team, integrates clinical, epidemiological and microbiological information with genome variations based on whole genome sequencing data. This research is conducted in collaboration with St. Petersburg Research institute of Phthisiopulmonology and St. Petersburg Pasteur Institute, and supported by St. Petersburg State University and Russian Foundation for Basic Research (RFBR) grants.
