Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: 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. Availability of these genomes would help to elucidate the role of heavy metal resistance in the ecology of L. monocytogenes.
