Genome sequence of Staphylococcus aureus strain 11819-97, an ST80-IV European community-acquired methicillin-resistant isolate

J Bacteriol. 2012 Mar;194(6):1625-6. doi: 10.1128/JB.06653-11.


The European methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) clone ST80-IV has historically dominated community-associated infections in major parts of Europe and is a lineage strongly linked to skin and soft tissue infections. Here, we report the genome sequence of an ST80-IV representative, 11819-97, isolated from a skin infection in Denmark in 1997.
