SUMMARY Mycobacterium abscessus is a rapidly growing non-tuberculous mycobacterial species that has been associated with a wide spectrum of human infections. As the classification and biology of this organism is still not well understood, comparative genomic analysis on members of this species may provide further insights on their taxonomy, phylogeny,… (More)
We report the draft genome sequence of a clinical isolate, strain M115, identified as Mycobacterium massiliense, a member of the newly created taxon of Mycobacterium abscessus subspecies bolletii comb. nov.
Mycobacterium abscessus is an emerging clinical pathogen commonly associated with non-tuberculous mycobacterial infections. We report herein the draft genome of M. abscessus strain M156. M ycobacterium abscessus has been considered the most patho-genic and chemotherapy-resistant rapid-growing mycobac-terium. It is an environmental organism commonly… (More)
