Staphylococcus aureus is found on healthy humans and can cause minor skin infections to life threatening diseases. There are less treatment options due to increased resistance to antibiotics. Skin-contact surfaces in the gym are known to be potential reservoirs for transmission of antibiotic resistant bacteria. The aim of the study was to analyze antibiotic resistance genes in S. aureus isolated from environmental surfaces in campus classrooms and gyms.
