- Listeria monocytogenes frequently exhibits resistance to arsenic. We report here the draft genome sequences of eight genetically diverse arsenic-resistant L. monocytogenes strains from human listeriosis and food-associated environments. The availability of these genomes will help elucidate the role of heavy-metal resistance in the ecology of L. monocytogenes.
