    Mycobacterium tuberculosis is a contagious agent that causes tuberculosis. A specific type (called the K cluster) of M. tuberculosis with 10 copies of IS6110 in restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) has been found in about 4% of M. tuberculosis isolates in Korea. Here, we report the complete genome sequence of M. tuberculosis Korean strain KIT87190 belonging to the K cluster.
