Genome Announc. 2016 Jun 16;4(3):e00566-16. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00566-16.


Colombia is one of the 105 countries that has reported at least one case of extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis (XDR-TB). The Mycobacterium tuberculosis Haarlem genotype is ubiquitous worldwide. Here, we report the high-quality draft genome sequence of a Colombian Haarlem XDR-TB clinical isolate composed of 4,329,127 bp with 4,386 genes.
