Investigating the variability of virulence in natural populations of Staphylococcus aureus using whole genome sequencing

Abstract:

Invasive Staphylococcus aureus disease is an important cause of morbidity and mortality, but is much rarer than asymptomatic carriage. The contribution of the bacterial genome to S. aureus infection is incompletely understood, and molecular epidemiology provides conflicting evidence. This thesis aims to improve our understanding of this contribution using the resolution afforded by whole-genome sequencing.

In a systematic study of S. aureus evolution in 1...
