Genome Announc. 2016 Aug 25;4(4):e00861-16. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00861-16.


Bacillus anthracis strains K1 and K2 were isolated from two plains zebra anthrax carcasses in Etosha National Park, Namibia. These are draft genomes obtained by Illumina MiSeq sequencing of isolates collected from culture of blood-soaked soil from each carcass.
