Draft Genome Sequences and Antimicrobial Profiles of Three Staphylococcus epidermidis Strains from Neonatal Blood Samples

Microbiol Resour Announc. 2021 Apr 1;10(13):e00170-21. doi: 10.1128/MRA.00170-21.


Data on molecular characterization of coagulase-negative staphylococci causing neonatal sepsis in low-income countries are highly limited. This report highlights the isolation of three Staphylococcus epidermidis non-genome assembly strains (NGASs) from blood samples from neonates with unknown transmission sources. Pathogenic factors and sources of transmission of these strains warrant further investigation.
