Whole genome sequence analysis and comparison of JKD6159 with other ST93 CA-MRSA isolates. (A) Circular diagram of the JKD6159, TPS3104, TPS3105 and TPS3106 chromosomes (from inner to outer circles). TPS3104, TPS3105 and TPS3106 contigs were mapped by BLASTN to JKD6159. TPS3104 contained SCCmecIV and ϕSA2 with lukSF-PV; TPS3105 contained SCCmecIV but lacked ϕSA2 and lukSF-PV; TPS3106 contained SCCmecV, and ϕSA2 without lukSF-PV. (B) ST93 S. aureus phylogeny inferred by split decomposition analysis from pairwise comparisons of the 253 variable nucleotide positions identified from the ST93 core chromosome of 2,720,685 bp. Figures indicate the number of nucleotide substitutions per branch. All nodes have 100% bootstrap support.
