Genome Sequences of Two Methicillin-Sensitive Staphylococcus aureus Healthy Skin Isolates

Microbiol Resour Announc. 2022 Jun 16;11(6):e0040222. doi: 10.1128/mra.00402-22. Epub 2022 May 16.


The USA300 and USA600 clonal lineages are the cause of many serious Staphylococcus aureus infections. Here, we report the complete genomes of two methicillin-sensitive S. aureus strains isolated from the healthy skin of adults in Colorado, which are most phylogenetically similar to the USA300 and USA600 lineages.
