Project Description
Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium (VRE) is one of the leading causes of nosocomial infections in healthcare facilities around the globe. VRE strain Aus0004 belongs to a common epidemic clone, multi locus sequence type 17, and was isolated from the bloodstream of a patient in Melbourne, Australia in 1998
