Draft Genome Sequences of Two South African Bacillus anthracis Strains.

Bacillus anthracis is a Gram-positive bacterium that causes anthrax, mainly in herbivores through exotoxins and capsule produced on plasmids, pXO1 and pXO2. This paper compares the whole-genome sequences of two B. anthracis strains from an endemic region and a sporadic outbreak in South Africa. Sequencing was done using next-generation sequencing technologies.
