In "A Genetic resource for Rapid and Comprehensive Phenotype Screening of Nonessential Staphylococcus aureus Genes" (mBio 4(2):e00537-12, doi: 10.1128/mBio.00537-12, 2013), Fey et al. describe the creation and application of a defined transposon mutant library of methicillin-resistant S. aureus. This library is well organized and made accessible to the research community through an easily navigable central repository. The mutant library promises to be a significant resource for researchers seeking a greater understanding of this pathogen.
