Strains of select agents (CDC category A and B bacteria) assigned to the target group in profile searches. Genomes sequences from some select agents were unavailable at the time (Clostridium botulinum and Chlamydia psittaci) and the toxin-producing strains of Staphylococcus aureus and Clostridium perfringens were excluded from the searches. Where multiple strains had been sequenced (such as for Bacillus anthracis and Yersinia pestis), a single representative strain was selected so that results were not skewed to favor species with multiple entries.
