Data from: Whole-genome sequence data and analysis of a Staphylococcus aureus strain SJTUF_J27 isolated from seaweed

The complete genome sequence data of S. aureus SJTUF_J27 isolated from seaweed in China is reported here. The size of the genome is 2.8 Mbp with 32.9% G+C content, consisting of 2614 coding sequences and 77 RNAs. A number of virulence factors, including antimicrobial resistance genes (fluoroquinolone, beta-lactams, fosfomycin, mupirocin, trimethoprim, and aminocoumarin) and the egc enterotoxin cluster, were found in the genome. In addition, the genes encoding metal-binding proteins and associated heavy metal resistance were identified. Phylogenetic data analysis, based upon genome-wide single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), and comparative genomic evaluation with BLAST Ring Image Generator (BRIG) were performed for SJTUF_J27 and four S. aureus strains isolated from food. The completed genome data was deposited in NCBI's GenBank under the accession number CP019117,

    With an average of 331-fold sequencing coverage, a genome size of 2,804,759 bp constituting 32.9% of G+C content was generated. RAST annotation of the genome revealed a total of 399 subsystems, 2614 coding sequences (80 of them related to virulence, disease and defense), and 77 RNAs. PathogenFinder showed the probability of this strain being a human pathogen was 98%. Bacteria and source DNA available from Xianming Shi, 800 Dongchuan Road, Shanghai, China, 200240. Annotation was added by the NCBI Prokaryotic Genome Annotation Pipeline (released 2013).

Data In Brief

Intended use

The complete genome sequence of S. aureus SJTUF_J27 isolated from Chinese seaweed provides a genetic basis for understanding the epidemiology of food-associated staphylococci. The sequence data will be useful for comparative genomic study of S. aureus. Analyses of virulence and antibiotic resistance genes can be used to predict the probability of the organism being a multidrug resistance pathogen. The genome-wide SNP analysis generated a high-resolution phylogenetic tree of S. aureus food isolates, which is a useful tool for accurately discriminating closely related species.
