- Listeria monocytogenes is a foodborne pathogen of global concern due to the high mortality rate among immunocompromised patients. Whole-genome sequences of 12 strains of L. monocytogenes from humans were reported. The availability of these genomes should provide useful information on the evolutionary history and genetic diversity of L. monocytogenes .
