The primary structures of the 16S rRNAs of Bacillus anthracis, Bacillus cereus, Bacillus mycoides, and Bacillus thuringiensis were determined by using the reverse transcription-dideoxy sequencing method. All of the strains exhibited very high levels of sequence similarity T (T = type strain) by only a single nucleotide. The 16S rRNA sequences of B. mycoides and B. thuringiensis differed from each other and from the sequences of B. anthracis and B. cereus by four to nine nucleotides.
