Mycobacterium marinum is a major causative agent of mycobacteriosis in fish that has a broad range of hosts, including in human isolates. So far, genomic analyses have focused on the human isolate. Here, we compared the draft genome sequences of two strains of M. marinum isolated from fish (MB2 and Europe) with the M. marinum M isolated from humans. M. marinum MB2 and Europe have single, circular chromosomes of 6,134,389 and 6,029,340 bp, and average G + C contents of 65.7 and 65.5… CONTINUE READING
