Hello All,

Excuse me if this turns out to be the wrong kind of question for this 
group, but I've been studying a little bit about tuberculosis, and I'm 
not sure what is meant by the classification of mycobacterium. What are 
the distigushing features of a mycobacterium that set it apart from 
other forms of bacteria? And what, if anything, does it have in common 
with fungi?

TIA for anything that may shed some light on the subject! :)
