Although microarray technology has become more widespread as a discovery tool for bacterial pathogenesis, it remains a method available only to laboratories with access to expensive equipment and costly analysis software. Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the causative agent for tuberculosis (TB), afflicts one-third of the global population, and kills between 2 and 3 million people per year. While the majority of cases of TB occur in developing areas of the world, facilities in these regions may not… CONTINUE READING
