By taking an in-depth look at the transcription factor network of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, researchers have gained new insights into how the bacterium adapts to environmental changes, including conditions of low oxygen. For now, the team has looked at about a quarter of the more than 180 known transcription factors in the M. tuberculosis genome 50 in all to date, though co-corresponding author Kyle Minch told BioWorld Today that "we are on our way to doing all of them."
