Complete genome sequence of Mycobacterium intracellulare clinical strain MOTT-02

J Bacteriol. 2012 May;194(10):2771. doi: 10.1128/JB.00365-12.


Here, we report the first complete genome sequence of the Mycobacterium intracellulare clinical strain MOTT-02, which was previously grouped in the INT2 genotype of M. intracellulare. This genome sequence will serve as a valuable reference for improving the understanding of the disparity in the virulence and epidemiologic traits between M. intracellulare genotypes.
