The recombination dynamics of Staphylococcus aureus inferred from spA gene

BMC Microbiol
PMCID: 4940709
PMID: 27400707
DOI: 10.1186/s12866-016-0757-9

[…] iological studies based on the sequence variation of the polymorphic region X of the spA locus []. This allows a rapidly characterization of the isolates through comparison of SpA sequence with Ridom SpaServer database [] in which different strains are assigned to distinct spA types according to the generated profile. Moreover, cluster analysis is then possible through the algorithm based on repea […]


Staphylococcus aureus isolates colonizing and infecting cirrhotic and liver transplantation patients: comparison of molecular typing and virulence factors

[…] es were analyzed using Bioedit software (version 7.2.5; Ibis Biosciences, CA). Lastly, the spa type was determined using the online software spaTyper ( and confirmed on SpaServer database ( in the National Microbiology Laboratory of Canada, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. […]


High Density Livestock Production and Molecularly Characterized MRSA Infections in Pennsylvania

Environ Health Perspect
PMCID: 4014753
PMID: 24509131
DOI: 10.1289/ehp.1307370

[…] yping) was completed using the primers TIGR-F (5´-GCCA​AAGC​GCTA​ACCT​TTTA​-3´) and TIGR-R (5´-TCCA​GCTA​ATAA​CGCT​GCAC​-3´) (). Spa types were assigned a StaphType (e.g., t008, t002) using the Ridom SpaServer database ( We subsequently mapped spa types to clonal complex (CC) categories (CC5 or CC5-like, CC8 or CC8-like, or other) using the Ridom SpaServer spa to mul […]
