Complete and assembled genome sequence of Staphylococcus aureus RKI4, a food-poisoning strain exhibiting a novel S. aureus pathogenicity island carrying seb.

Authors: Stevens, Marc J A and Stephan, Roger and Johler, Sophia

The genome of Staphylococcus aureus RKI4, a strain isolated from feces of a patient in a case of staphylococcal food poisoning, was sequenced using combined Illumina and single-molecule real-time sequencing. Hierarchical assembly of the genome resulted in a 2,725,654-bp chromosome and a 17,905-bp mobile genetic element. Copyright © 2015 Stevens et al.
