Genome Announc. 2016 Jun 2;4(3):e00486-16. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00486-16.


Mycobacterium africanum is a member of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex. Most commonly found in West African countries, it has scarcely been described in South America. Here, we report the first genome sequence of a Colombian M. africanum clinical isolate. It is composed of 4,493,502 bp, with 4,069 genes.
