Complete Genome Sequence of Mycobacterium stephanolepidis

Genome Announc. 2017 Aug 17;5(33):e00810-17. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00810-17.


Mycobacterium stephanolepidis is a rapid-growing nonpigmented species isolated from marine teleost fish (Stephanolepis cirrhifer) and is closely related to Mycobacterium chelonae Here, we report the complete sequence of its genome, comprising a 4.9-Mb chromosome. The sequence represents essential data for future phylogenetic and comparative genome studies of this fish pathogen.
