I am interested in the presence, type, synthesis, and gene
structure of capsules in Bacillus spp. I am aware of capsule
in B. anthracis but I haven't found any other references for
other Bacillus spp. Are there other references I can get?
Is there any correlation between gram pos capsule and gram neg
What is the rationale for making capsule in gram pos organisms
over, say, spore formation?
In B. anthracis, is capsule a normal situation? or does the
absence of it favor spore formation?
Thanks for any help,
