Abstract

Staphylococcus haemolyticus is one of the pathogens that harbor a high level of antibiotic resistance. Here, we highlighted the potential determinants for multidrug resistance and virulence from the draft genome of Staphylococcus haemolyticus strain C10A, isolated from a patient with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease exacerbation.

Keywords: Staphylococcus haemolyticus, whole genome sequencing, multidrug resistance, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
