A decade of accelerated research on B anthracis
and the very closely related organisms Bacillus cereus and Bacillus thuringiensis have yielded extensive new information about disease pathogenesis and interspecies and intraspecies genetic variation.

Their topics include the outer structure of the Bacillus anthracis
spore, the genome, iron acquisition by the bacteria, anthrax toxins, interactions with macrophages, dissemination through hosts, vaccines, and anthrax as a weapon of war and terrorism.
The present study is aimed at assessing the ability of Klebsiella oxytoca, Citrobacter freundii and Bacillus anthracis
