Abstract

The aim of this study was to support a risk assessment of MRSA-isolates from swine using a diagnostic DNA-microarray to detect virulence-, toxin- and resistance related genes. In comparison with other species like poultry, cattle and humans there were only few isolates with virulence genes.
