Mycobacterium shigaense is a slowly growing scotochromogenic species and a member of the Mycobacterium simiae complex group. Here, we report the complete sequence of its genome, comprising a 5.2-Mb chromosome. The sequence will represent the essential data for future phylogenetic and comparative genome studies of the Mycobacterium simiae complex group. Copyright © 2018 Yoshida et al.
