The Bacillus anthracis Carbosap genome, which includes the pXO1 and pXO2 plasmids, has been shown to encode the major B. anthracis virulence factors, yet this strain’s attenuation has not yet been explained. Here we report the draft genome sequence of this strain, and a comparison to fully virulent B. anthracis.
