Diversity of across Evolutionary Scales

Tuberculosis (TB) is a grave threat to global public health and is the second leading cause of death due to infectious disease. The causative agent, Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M.tb), has emerged in increasingly drug resistant forms that hamper our efforts to control TB. We need a better understanding of M.tb adaptation to guide development of more effective TB treatment and control strategies. The goal of this study was to gain insight into M.tb evolution within individual patients with TB. We found that TB patients harbor a diverse population of M.tb. We further found evidence to suggest that the bacterial population evolves measurably in response to selection pressures imposed by the environment within hosts. Changes were particularly notable in M.tb genes involved in the regulation, synthesis, and transportation of lipids and glycolipids of the bacterial cell envelope. These findings have important implications for drug and vaccine development, and provide insight into TB host pathogen interactions.
