Staphylococci are prevalent skin-dwelling bacteria that are also leading causes of antibiotic-resistant infections. Viruses that infect and lyse these organisms (virulent staphylococcal phages) can… Continue Reading
Drug-resistant staphylococci, particularly Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus epidermidis, are leading causes of hospital-acquired infections. Bacteriophages and their peptidoglycan hydrolytic… Continue Reading
Staphylococcus aureus is a leading cause of a wide range of clinical infections. Here, we announce the complete genome sequence of S. aureus siphophage Lorac, a phiETA-like temperate phage that is… Continue Reading
Staphylococcus epidermidis is an opportunistic pathogen that commonly colonizes human skin and mucous membranes. We report here the complete genome sequences of three S. epidermidis phages,… Continue Reading
Organisms spanning all domains of life protect against pathogens using diverse mechanisms of nucleic acid immunity which detect and eliminate foreign genetic material1. The perpetual arms race… Continue Reading
