Tracking MRSA Evolution to Discover Important Biomarkers to Quickly Characterize Unique MRSA Clones in Hospital Bloodstream Infections

The project will use molecular approaches, including genomics and phylogenomics, to find biomarkers that could indicate the location in the genetic code driving bacterial adaptation. In addition, these biomarkers could be used as a rapid method for screening predominant and high-virulency MRSA clones in hospitals, and thus quickly provide infection control committees with key data on MRSA spread and its antimicrobial resistance profile.
