CLIST is a collection made up of strains from different origins, cultivated, characterized and preserved by the technical team of the Listeria Sector of the Laboratory of Bacterial Zoonoses (LABZOO) of the Oswaldo Cruz Institute (IOC), Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (FIOCRUZ-RJ). Our collection consists of the genera Listeria and Yersinia, especially the species Listeria monocytogenes and Yersinia.enterocolitica, totaling approximately 2,000 strains that are provided free of charge to several public research and teaching institutions in Brazil. Its collection is composed of clinical, environmental and food isolates, in addition to standard strains. The direct link between CLIST and the research lines developed in the Listeria Sector at LABZOO allows the characterization of the strains using phenotypic and genotypic methods, following the technological advances in the area.
