Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We report here the draft genome sequence of Listeria monocytogenes strain SLCC208 from Seeliger's historical Special Listeria Culture Collection, initially cultured from a human case in France in 1921. This is, to our knowledge, the oldest L. monocytogenes isolate available and may be useful for comparative genomic studies of L. monocytogenes.
