Abstract

Sequence type 1 (ST1) methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) SCCmec IV[2B] has become one of the most common community-associated MRSA clones in Australia. We report the complete genome sequence of one of the earliest isolated Australian S. aureus ST1-MRSA-IV strains, WBG8287, isolated from an Indigenous Australian patient living in the remote Kimberley region of Western Australia.
