Draft Genome Sequences of Two Historical Listeria Monocytogenes Strains From Human Listeriosis Cases in 1933

Genome Announc. 2016 Dec 8;4(6):e01364-16. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01364-16.

Abstract

We report here the draft genome sequences of two Listeria monocytogenes strains from some of the earliest reported cases of human listeriosis in North America. The strains were isolated in 1933 from patients in Massachusetts and Connecticut, USA, and belong to the widely disseminated hypervirulent clonal complex 1 (CC1) and CC2.
