We report here the draft genome sequences of five rapidly growing Mycobacterium (RGM) species potentially pathogenic to humans, M. thermoresistibile, M. fortuitum subsp. acetamidolyticum, M. canariasense, M. brisbanense, and M. novocastrense. As the clinical importance of RGMs is increasingly being recognized worldwide, these sequences would contribute to further advances in RGM research.
