AF2122/97 is the reference strain for the bovine tuberculosis bacillus. Here we report an update to the AF2122/97 genome annotation to reflect 616 new protein identifications that replace many of the old hypothetical coding sequences and proteins of unknown function in the genome. These changes integrate information from functional assignments of orthologous coding sequences in the H37Rv genome. We have also added 69 additional new gene names.
