Reminds me of the dismay that Bacillus researchers had when genomics revealed just how close B. anthracis was innocent species like B. cereus and B. thuringiensis. A few genes here, a few mutations there, and presto! Although I don't think anyone has actually discovered a strain of these species that causes an anthrax-like disease.
