Staphylococcus aureus was isolated from bacteria swabs collected from participants at Concordia University St. Paul for this study. Isolated Staphylococcus aureus was then run through genomic prep to gather DNA from each strain. Collected DNA was amplified using PCR with specific primers to the targeted sec gene. The amplified sec gene was then transferred to gel electrophoresis, establishing whether the original strain contained the sec gene.
