The use of antibiotics is causing high resistance in bacterial cell. One of the major pathogen that cause of dangerous infection is staphylococcus aureus, these bacteria can urgently resistance to new generation of antibiotic such methicillin. Hence recognize the bacterial genome and mobile element such lysogenic phage and understanding the pathogenesis of pathogen is important. In this review we investigated the Staphylococcus aureus phages and their role in virulence gene transfer.
