TB is the leading bacterial cause of deaths worldwide and a pathogen of pandemic proportion. However, like the case for most microbes, its most unique attributes, and potentially most selective targets, are encoded by genes of unknown function. The establishment of the metabolomic and biochemistry core proposed herein will help fill this gap in knowledge.
