Draft Genome Sequences of Five Clinical Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus Isolates and a Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus epidermidis Isolate

Genome Announc. 2015 Jul 30;3(4):e00836-15. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00836-15.


We report the complete draft genome sequences of five individually isolated strains of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and a Staphylococcus epidermidis strain. These clinically important isolates have staphylococcal cassette chromosome mec type A, while Panton-Valentine leukocidin (PVL) toxin coding genes were present in MRSA isolates only.
