Scientists in France and Morocco fully sequenced the genome and accessory genome of a Staphylococcus capitis clone that has proven resistant to many drugs and is particularly detrimental to newborns. They identified many elements of antimicrobial resistance, including six genes carried on mobile genetic elements. BluePippin was used for size selection prior to sequencing on the PacBio RS II instrument.
