Mycobacterium bovis bacillus Calmette-Guérin (M. bovis BCG) is the only vaccine available against tuberculosis (TB). This study reports on an integrated genome analysis workflow for BCG, resulting in the completely assembled genome sequence of BCG Danish 1331 (07/270), one of the WHO reference strains for BCG vaccines. We demonstrate how this analysis workflow enables the resolution of genome duplications and of the genome of engineered derivatives of this vaccine strain.
