Staphylococcus epidermidis is a ubiquitous skin commensal that has the potential to become pathogenic and cause disease. Here, we report the complete genome sequence of a S. epidermidis strain isolated from adult healthy skin that shows high expression of the virulence factor extracellular cysteine protease A (EcpA).
