The Staphylococci and staphylococcal pathogenesis

Edited by: David Heinrichs, Martin J. McGavin

Publisher: Frontiers Media SA

ISBN: 978-2-88919-057-7

Product Name: Frontiers Research Topic Ebook

Members of the genus Staphylococcus play important roles in disease causation in humans and animals. Over the past decade, the completed sequencing of many staphylococcal genomes has contributed to a surge in the number of publications, which have promoted a tremendous advance in our knowledge of these important pathogens. Significant developments include the emergence of new and highly virulent strains of S. aureus, advances in tracking the evolution of human and animal adapted strains, a heightened appreciation of the role of mobile genetic elements in antibiotic resistance and pathogenesis, and important insights into staphylococcal physiology, immune evasion strategies, and cell surface proteins, as well as significant advances in vaccine development and therapeutics. This Research Topic will focus attention on the latest developments in these areas as they pertain to S. aureus and members of the coagulase-negative Staphylococci, and will also strive to identify areas of future development.
