Comparative genomic hybridization by array of hospital-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus isolates to detect mobile-genetic-element variation between colonising and infecting isolates


ABSTRACT: Whole-genome analysis by 62-strain microarray showed variation in resistance and virulence genes on mobile genetic elements (MGEs) between 40 isolates of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) strain CC22-SCCmecIV but also showed (i) detection of two previously unrecognized MRSA transmission events and (ii) that 7/8 patients were infected with a variant of their own colonizing isolate.
