Tuberculosis (TB) is a reemerging disease and a significant health problem caused by members of the complex (MTC). This group of organisms includes well-known pathogens, such as , , and (including bacillus Calmette-Guérin [BCG], the vaccine strain), together with other, less common species ( Table 1 ). All members of the MTC exhibit a 99.9% sequence similarity, and their 16S rRNAs are also conserved, with the exception of ( ).
