Bacillus cereus is a Gram-positive, spore-forming bacterium of the B.cereus group. It is closely related to Bacillus anthracis and Bacillus thuringiensis. Bacillus cereus is a ubiquitous soil organism and opportunistic human pathogen most commonly associated with food poisoning, causing diarrheic (late onset) or emetic (quick onset) outbreaks.

Strain NVH 391-98 is a rare but particularly severe food-borne pathogen, isolated following a food-poisoning outbreak in France in 1998. It has a smaller genome than other B.cereus group strains, with the smallest coding potential of the group and should perhaps be part of a new species (B.cytotoxis or B.cytotoxicus have been proposed). Unlike all other B.cereus representatives it cannot synthesize tryptophan. It does not encode any hemolytic toxins, but does encode other toxins, including CytK, NheA, NheB and NheC. It does not seem to encode the sigma B factor or related regulatory proteins.
