Characterisation of the metabolome of Mycobacterium tuberculosis to identify new pathways and pathway holes

Includes abstract. / Includes bibliographical references. / Due to high incidence rates and the development of new drug-resistant or multidrug-resistant strains of TB, the development of new medicines and treatments for tuberculosis is a necessity. In order to develop these drugs, Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) needs to be studied more completely; this study performs a characterisation of the metabolome of Mtb and comparison across the phylogenetic profile to identify notable pathways.
