J Bacteriol. 2010 Mar;192(5):1471-2. doi: 10.1128/JB.01627-09. Epub 2010 Jan 4.


Staphylococcus lugdunensis is a member of the coagulase-negative staphylococci and commonly found as part of the human skin flora. It is a significant cause of catheter-related bacteremia and also causes serious infections like native valve endocarditis in previously healthy individuals. We report the complete genome sequence of this medically important bacterium.
