Abstract

Legionella pneumophila is the causative agent of legionellosis. Here, we report the draft genome sequences of five L. pneumophila strains, Bnt314, Ofk308, Twr292, Ymg289, and Ymt294, isolated from environmental water samples. Comparative analyses of these genomes may reveal the survival mechanisms and virulence of L. pneumophila in the natural environment.
