      For those interested in the history of disease:

      ScienceDaily (Oct. 22, 2008) — The evolutionary timing and spread of
      the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTBC), one of the most
      successful groups of bacterial pathogens, remains largely unknown.
      Here, using mycobacterial tandem repeat sequences as genetic markers,
      we show that the MTBC consists of two independent clades, one composed
      exclusively of M. tuberculosis lineages from humans and the other
      composed of both animal and human isolates.
