Title: Ten Genome Sequences of Human and Livestock Isolates of Bacillus anthracis from the Country of Georgia

Abstract

Bacillus anthracis causes the acute fatal disease anthrax, is a proven biological weapon, and is endemic in Georgia, where human and animal cases are reported annually. Furthermore, we present whole-genome sequences of 10 historical B. anthracis strains from Georgia.
