Abstract

We report here the complete 2.92 Mb genome sequence of a clinical isolate of methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus subsp. aureus demonstrating intermediate level vancomycin resistance. The strain, named JKD6008, belongs to multi-locus sequence type 239 and was isolated from the blood stream of a patient in New Zealand in 2003.
