Abstract

Mutants of an attenuated Bacillus anthracis (ΔANR) strain conferring increasing levels of ciprofloxacin resistance have been described. Here, we report the draft genome sequences of the parent strain (ΔANR pXO1-, pXO2-) and its derivatives conferring low (step 1; 0.5 μg/ml), medium (step 2; 8 to 16 μg/ml), and high (step 3; 32 to 64 μg/ml) levels of ciprofloxacin resistance.
