The public availability of numerous microbial genomes is enabling the analysis of bacterial biology in great detail and with an unprecedented, organism-wide and taxon-wide, broad scope. Streptococcus pneumoniae is one of the most important bacterial pathogens throughout the world. We present here sequences and functional annotations for 2.1-Mbp of(More)
A synergistic effect between vancomycin or teicoplanin and different beta-lactam antibiotics was found for two strains of Enterococcus faecium, EFM4 and EFM11, expressing resistance to glycopeptides and belonging to the VANA class. The MICs of penicillin for these two strains were 16 and 128 micrograms/ml, respectively. By using a penicillin-binding protein(More)
Thirty-three French laboratories took part in a study to determine the frequency of antibiotic resistance to S. pneumoniae, H. influenzae and M. catarrhalis in different regions of the country. A total of 1317 bacterial isolates were studied. The level of resistance to penicillin among isolates of S. pneumoniae was high particularly in children with otitis(More)
