n1_4mer:GRV/n1_4mer:RV = (Global Relative Variance of OU patterns) / (Local Relative Variance of OU patterns)
n0_4mer:D = Distance between local and global OU patterns
n0_4mer:PS = Distance between 2 strands of same DNA molecule
Selected loci indicated by large D, increased GRV associated with decreased RV and moderate increase in PS
NC_013450: Staphylococcus aureus subsp. aureus ED98, complete genome NCBI: NC_013450 Host Lineage: Staphylococcus aureus; Staphylococcus; Staphylococcaceae; Bacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria General Information: This strain was isolated from a broiler chicken in Northern Ireland. This organism is a major cause of nosocomial (hospital-acquired) and community-acquired infections. Since its discovery as an opportunistic pathogen, S. aureus continues to be a major cause of mortality and is responsible for a variety of infections including, boils, furuncles, styes, impetigo and other superficial skin infections in humans. Also known to cause more serious infections particularly in the chronically ill or immunocompromised. These include pneumonia, deep abscesses, osteomyelitis, endocarditis, phlebitis, mastitis and meningitis. The ability to cause invasive disease is associated with persistance in the nasal cavity of a host.
