We report the resequencing and revised annotation of the Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis K10 genome. A total of 90 single-nucleotide errors and a 51-bp indel in the original K10 genome were corrected, and the whole genome annotation was revised. Correction of these sequencing errors resulted in 28 frameshift alterations. The amended genome sequence is accessible via the supplemental section of study SRR060191 in the NCBI Sequence Read Archive and will serve as a valuable reference genome for future studies.
