(MACOTRA) Combating MRSA; increasing our understanding of transmission success will lead to better control of MRSA

Project summary

The primary aims of the MACOTRA project are three-fold

  1. To develop and provide a framework for evaluating differences in transmission of MRSA.
  2. To unravel the different contributions to MRSA clonal success on a genetic and population level.
  3. To develop a mathematical model which predicts and unravels the rise and shine of clones. Study material will be epidemiologically well-defined isolates from international collections, and microbiomes from patients.
