Listeria monocytogenes causes the food-borne illness listeriosis that primarily infects "vulnerable" groups (e.g., elderly adults, pregnant women, very young children, and the immunocompromised). We sequenced the genome of L. monocytogenes XXIII (ATCC 15313) and assembled it into a single scaffold (three contigs) and deposited the annotated assembly into GenBank as accession no. JOOX00000000.
