The current release (R27 - March 2013) contains the updated annotation of the M. tuberculosis H37Rv genome sequence. In this release, over 700 CDS have been updated with proteomics data that confirm their translational start sites. This includes 63 that did not previously have proteomics annotation in TubercuList.

The TubercuList knowledge base integrates genome details, protein information, drug and transcriptome data, mutant and operon annotation, bibliography, structural views and comparative genomics, in a structured manner required for the rational development of new diagnostic, therapeutic and prophylactic measures against tuberculosis. With the means of expert curation and continuous updates, we deliver a broad view of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis genome.
