Background: With 1.5 million deaths in 2014, the most recent report of the WHO ranks tuberculosis (TB) alongside HIV as a leading cause of death by infectious diseases. In combination, the spread of (multi-)drug resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis is rising (480 000 new cases), impeding the treatment of infected patients. Current TB drug resistance research is mainly focused on the genomic level, using WGS to search for resistance-causing mutations. However, transcriptional analyses can be a powerful tool as well. Analyses on susceptible strains provide information on the response to th…
