Predicting persistence and clinical expression of S.aureus infections using molecular characterization

Confirm that the identification of virulence genes and biofilm production of current strains of S. aureus is a good predictive tool to estimate duration and expression of these strains. Encourage the use of this diagnostic method before treating or culling cows.
