According to a study from Germany, "Sequencing of the genomes of Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Mycobacterium bovis provides a unique opportunity to study the biology of these pathogens on the genomic level. The computational detection of anomalous gene clusters such as those encompassed by pathogenicity islands allows for a narrowing of the study into well-defined groups of genes."
"Pathogenicity islands of M. tuberculosis (strains H37Rv and CDC1551) as well as M. bovis genomes comprise a group of genes encoding proteins that have been shown...
