Draft Genome Sequences and Antimicrobial Profiles of Three Staphylococcus epidermidis Strains from Neonatal Blood Samples


Abstract

Data on molecular characterization of coagulase-negative staphylococci causing neonatal sepsis in low-income countries are highly limited. This report highlights the isolation of three Staphylococcus epidermidis non-genome assembly strains (NGASs) from blood samples from neonates with unknown transmission sources. Pathogenic factors and sources of transmission of these strains warrant further investigation.
