We will be culturing fully virulent strains of the select agent Yersinia pestis under a variety of conditions in our BSL-3 facility; these strains will be used to generate sterilized lysates for analysis. These lysates will be transferred to Argonne National Labs for use proteomic analyses to develop forensic signatures of biodefense pathogens.
