Variation among isolates of Bacillus anthracis was examined by using restriction fragmentation patterns and the PCR performed with arbitrary and sequence-specific oligonucleotide primers. The patterns were compared with the patterns generated from strains of closely related species belonging to the "Bacillus cereus group" of bacteria, including B. cereus, Bacillus thuringiensis, and Bacillus mycoides. All B. anthracis profiles were identical for each of 18 restriction enzymes, each of 10… CONTINUE READING
