Complete Genome Sequence of a Staphylococcus epidermidis Strain with Exceptional Antimicrobial Activity

Genome Announc. 2017 Mar 9;5(10):e00004-17. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00004-17.

Abstract

Staphylococcus epidermidis is a Gram-positive bacterium that is prevalent on human skin. The species is associated with skin health, as well as with opportunistic infections. Here, we report the complete genome sequence of S. epidermidis 14.1.R1, isolated from human skin. In bacterial interference assays, the strain showed exceptional antimicrobial activity.
