Prospective nucleotide sequence analysis of methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus isolates from Sokoto state
The epidemiology of MRSA has evolved considerably. In the past, MRSA strains could be traced back to a hospital or clinic source, but over the years there appear to be a decrease in hospital acquired MRSA and an upsurge in the occurrence in community acquired strains. Even-though in Nigeria there are studies that have reported on the molecular characterization of MRSA, Sadly, not much effort has been put into analysis and submission of sequenced data to Gene repositories. Based on information available to us, this is the first study to have successfully deposited nucleotide sequences of MRSA strains from Sokoto state owned Hospital into the Genbank database. Sequence reads of Molecular characterization should be deposited into Gene repositories database by researchers to further populate the database and improve the efficiency of local phylogenetic analysis to foster better bioinformatics as paucity of local data exists in these databases.
