The control of Staphylococcus aureus infection is being hampered by methicillin and other resistant strains. The identification of the unique antibiotic resistant genes from the genomes of various strains of S. aureus is of interest. We analyzed 11 S. aureus genomes sequences for Antibiotics Resistance Genes (ARGs) using CARD 2017 platform. We identified 32 ARGs across 11 S. aureus strains. Tet(38), norB, lmrB, mepA and mepR were present across genomes except for S. aureus strain UTSW MRSA 55. The mepA and mepR were found across 11 different genomes. However, FosB3, vgaALC, mphC and SAT-4 were found in UTSW MRSA 55, S.a. strain ISU935 and S.a. strain FDAARGOS_159. The prevalent mode of mechanism of antibiotics resistant was efflux pump complex or subunit conferring antibiotic resistance as well as protein(s). Analysis of norB, ImrB, norA, ImrB, tet (38), sav1866 and mecA have 12 to 14 TMHs. The results help in the understanding of Staphylococcus aureus pathogenesis in the context of antibiotic resistance.
