The three species of the group 1 bacilli, Bacillus anthracis, B. cereus, and B. thuringiensis, are genetically very closely related. All inhabit soil habitats but exhibit different phenotypes. B. anthracis is the causative agent of anthrax and is phylogenetically monomorphic, while B. cereus and B. thuringiensis are genetically more diverse. An amplified(More)
Comparative bacterial genomics shows that even different isolates of the same bacterial species can vary significantly in gene content. An effective means to survey differences across whole genomes would be highly advantageous for understanding this variation. Here we show that suppression subtractive hybridization (SSH) provides high, representative(More)
