Method Development for Bacillus anthracis

The USGS collaborated with USEPA to make improvements in processing and analytical methods for detection of B. anthracis spores in soil (loam and sandy soils). This effort included optimization of a processing protocol for soil samples contaminated with B. anthracis spores and will also look at demonstrating the method followed by DNA extraction and qPCR analysis.
