"It's still being tested ... it's not an innocent white powder, it's some kind of biological agent,"
they say it belongs to the bacillus group and is being tested
Bacillus represents a genus of Gram-positive bacteria which are ubiquitous in nature (soil, water, and airborne dust). Some species are natural flora in the human intestines. When grown on blood agar, Bacillus produces large, spreading, gray-white colonies with irregular margins. A unique characteristic of this bacterium is its ability to produce endospores when environmental conditions are stressful. The only other known spore-producing bacterium is Clostridium. Although most species of Bacillus are harmless saprophytes, two species are considered medically significant: B.anthracis and B. cereus.
