Mycobacterium xenopi, Nontuberculous mycobacteria, Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
Mycobacterium xenopi is a slow-growing, thermophilic, water-related Mycobacterium species. Like other nontuberculous mycobacteria, M. xenopi
more commonly infects humans with altered immune function, such as
chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients. It is considered
clinically relevant in a significant proportion of the patients from
whom it is isolated. We report here the whole genome sequence of M. xenopi type strain RIVM700367.
