The complete genome sequence of Bacillus anthracis Ames 'Ancestor'.

Ravel J., Jiang L., Stanley S.T., Wilson M.R., Decker R.S., Read T.D., Worsham P., Keim P.S., Salzberg S.L., Fraser-Liggett C.M., Rasko D.A.

The pathogenic bacterium Bacillus anthracis has become the subject of intense study as a result of its use in a bioterrorism attack in the United States in September and October 2001. Previous studies suggested that B. anthracis Ames Ancestor, the original Ames fully virulent plasmid-containing isolate, was the ideal reference. This study describes the complete genome sequence of that original isolate, derived from a sample kept in cold storage since 1981.
