Complete genome sequence of the methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus colonizing strain M92.

Authors: McClure, Jo-Ann and Zhang, Kunyan

M92 is a methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) colonizing strain belonging to ST239-MRSA-III. It frequently shows local nasal colonization in our hospital staff, but has never been associated with infection. We sequenced the complete genome of M92, in order to compare it to highly virulent MRSA strains to gain insight into MRSA virulence factors. Copyright © 2017 McClure and Zhang.
