Overview:
SCCmec is a database of staphylococcal cassette chromosome mec (SCCmec) elements that encode methicillin-resistance, which are the most representative staphylococcal cassette chromosome elements (SCCs). This database contains information of stranis and sequences, and it provides three functions to understand SCCmec elements.

1) "Overview" illustrate structures of SCCmec elements.

2) "Search" provides convenient tools to compare new data to extant SCCmec elements by searching SCCmec database, and to ccr genes and Ccr proteins by searching ccr database. The comparison of two SCCmec sequences can be visualized by creating a dot plot. Phylogenetic relations of ccr genes or Ccr proteins can be visualized by creating a phylogenetic tree.

3) "Identification" lists typing schemes and PCR methods to assign SCCmec elements.
