Abstract

Summary: DNA was isolated from with high purity. Its G + C content was between 64 and 67 mol%. The homology of DNA with DNA from three other rapidly growing mycobacteria was less than 22%, which indicates that is a discrete genomic species. Analysis of the DNAs with restriction endonucleases supported this finding.
