Abstract

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