High Resolution Typing by Whole Genome Mapping Enables Discrimination of LA-MRSA (CC398) Strains and Identification of Transmission Events

Figure 2

Detail of the whole genome maps of an outbreak of CA-MRSA (USA300) showing an additional DNA segment in 3 isolates.

All isolates had spa-type t024 and MLVA-type MT308. The gel image on the right hand side shows the PFGE profiles with an additional 80 kb band in the lower 3 isolates.
