Since the first edition of this book in 2013, many new tools and databases have become publicly available, as well as several have been discontinued. Here, we present an updated version of web resources on tuberculosis, providing more detailed information on some key concepts. However, the purpose of this chapter is by no means to offer an exhaustive list of all the resources available on the Internet about TB, the topic of this book. This would be a massive and perhaps futile work since the evolution of the Internet occurs at a very fast pace. Rather, this chapter concentrates on a selection of the most important, relevant and stable websites with relevance to several aspects of TB, such as research, treatment, main institutions, funding, and specialized platforms. We think this should complement all the other information already presented in this book, offering the reader a more integrated view of the disease, as well as access to new platforms and systems specialized in the analysis of data generated by a series of new technologies such as DNA sequencing.
