Draft genome sequence of Staphylococcus aureus 118 (ST772), a major disease clone from India

J Bacteriol. 2012 Jul;194(14):3727-8. doi: 10.1128/JB.00480-12.


We report the draft genome sequence of an ST772 Staphylococcus aureus disease isolate carrying staphylococcal cassette chromosome mec (SCCmec) type V from a pyomyositis patient. Our de novo short read assembly is ∼2.8 Mb and encodes a unique Panton-Valentine leukocidin (PVL) phage with structural genes similar to those of ϕ7247PVL and novel lysogenic genes at the N termini.
