Abstract

Mycobacterium mungi, a Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex pathogen, has emerged in banded mongoose in northern Botswana and Northwest Zimbabwe. The pathogen is transmitted through infected secretions used in olfactory communication behavior (K. A. Alexander, C. E. Sanderson, M. H. Larsen, S. Robbe-Austerman, M. C. Williams, and M. V. Palmer, mBio 7(3): e00281-16, 2016, http://dx.doi.org/10.1128/mBio.00281-16). We announce here the draft genome sequence of this emerging pathogen.
