Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a Gram-positive bacterium that causes community-acquired and health care-acquired infections. We previously demonstrated that clay phyllosilicates and customized aluminosilicates display antimicrobial activity against the MRSA strain SQL1. The SQL1 annotated genome reveals a USA300 lineage and contributes critical knowledge of the MRSA virulence factors associated with tissue infection.
