Complete genome sequence of Mycobacterium massiliense

J Bacteriol. 2012 Oct;194(19):5455. doi: 10.1128/JB.01219-12.


Mycobacterium massiliense is a rapidly growing bacterium associated with opportunistic infections. The genome of a representative isolate (strain GO 06) recovered from wound samples from patients who underwent arthroscopic or laparoscopic surgery was sequenced. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first announcement of the complete genome sequence of an M. massiliense strain.
