Provides a much needed compendium of genomic variants and their annotations for M. tuberculosis complex (MTBC) and provides the first step toward accelerating genotype–phenotype correlations in the closely related pathogens. tbvar provides a user-friendly interface, closely integrated and interlinked with other major resources in the field. The tool also provides interface for annotation of known variants and identification of novel variants obtained from genome sequencing data sets and could potentially lead to application in clinical settings.
