- Potential associations between severity of infection and the presence of virulence-associated genes in clinical strains of Staphylococcus aureusSteven R Gill
Department of Oral Biology, University at Buffalo, Buffalo, New York, United States of America
PLoS ONE 6:e18673. 2011..In this study, we evaluate potential association between the presence of specific genes in a collection of prospectively characterized S. aureus clinical isolates and clinical outcome...
- An Enterotoxin-Bearing Pathogenicity Island in Staphylococcus epidermidisJyoti Madhusoodanan
Department of Oral Biology, NYS Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics and Life Sciences, The State University of New York, NY, USA
J Bacteriol 193:1854-62. 2011..We also describe the genome sequence, excision, replication, and packaging of a novel bacteriophage in S. epidermidis FRI909, as well as attempts to mobilize the SePI element by this phage...
- Development of pooled suppression subtractive hybridization to analyze the pangenome of Staphylococcus aureusRobert S Gerrish
Department of Oral Biology, School of Dental Medicine, The State University of New York, Buffalo, NY 14203, United States
J Microbiol Methods 81:56-60. 2010..This is the first use of PSSH to examine the S. aureus pangenome. We propose that PSSH is a powerful tool for researchers interested in rapidly comparing the genomic content of multiple unstudied isolates...
- Virulence Determinants in Staphylococcus BacteremiaSteven R Gill; Fiscal Year: 2010..Knowledge acquired from this study could potentially be used to develop novel and possibly preventive therapies to eradicate complicated staphylococcal infections. ..
