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

Figure 4

Detail of the WGMs of 16 LA-MRSA isolates originating from unrelated veterinarians showing the discriminatory power of whole genome mapping.

The limited variation obtained by MLVA- and spa-typing is displayed on the right hand side of the WGMs. The blowup of the WGMs displays considerable variation in the SCCmec region.
