Sebastien Gagneux, of the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute in Basel, will give a College seminar in the College lecture theatre at 6.00 pm on Monday the 4th of May on the Origin and Future of Human Tuberculosis.  The poster of the seminar can be downloaded here and all interested participanrts are welcome.

This seminar is the first of a series of four devoted to Modern and Ancient Plagues (malaria, tuberculosis, HIV and Ebola).

Tuberculosis is one of the infectious diseases that have shaped the destiny of our species and recent sequence data from the Gagneux and several other laboratories have have shed light on the co-evolution of the pathogen and its host. The same studies offer a basis for countering the emergence of drug-resistant strains of M tuberculosis and their impact on current and future disease pattern and distribution.
