Straphylococci. The genus Staphylococcus are pathogens of humans and other mammals. Traditionally they were divided into two groups based on the coagulase reaction. Staphylcocci are generally found inhabiting the skin and mucous membranes of mammals and birds. Some members of this genus can be found as human commensals and these are generally More...
