Draft Genome Sequence of USA100 Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus Strain 209

Genome Announc. 2018 Jan 4;6(1):e01399-17. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01399-17.


USA100 strains are significant contributors to the overall burden of health care-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections. Strain 209 is a representative MRSA isolate that serves as a model organism for agr type II studies and USA100 virulence assessments. We present a draft genome sequence of this strain.
