Bacillus atrophaeus 1942

Names Bacillus atrophaeus 1942
Accession numbers NC_014639
Background Bacillus atrophaeus 1942.This project will compare modern type strains (e.g. ATCC 9372), strains currently in use within the biodefense community to archival strains of B. atrophaeus to trace the microevolution of B. atrophaeus during more than 70 years of development and use. In addition, this project compares B. atrophaeus subsp. globigii strains to the more distantly related B. atrophaeus subsp. atrophaeus strains. (NCBI BioProject: bp_list[1])
