Amerithrax Revisited

In February 2010, the FBI closed its case on Bruce Ivins. Many in the bio community found this a bit odd since the study commissioned by the FBI on the science supporting the case had not yet been completed.  More than a year later, this study will finally be released.

Stay tuned.  The case against Ivins is about to become “curiouser and curiouser” (to borrow a quote from Lewis Carroll).

A National Research Council committee reviewing the scientific approaches, methodologies, and analytical techniques used by the Federal Bureau of Investigation during its investigation of the 2001 anthrax mailings, and whether the FBI reached appropriate scientific conclusions from its use of these techniques, will release its report on Tuesday, Feb. 15, at an 11 a.m. EST press conference and public briefing in Washington, D.C.  A live video webcast of the event will be available at

The press conference and public briefing will begin at 11 a.m. EST Tuesday, Feb. 15, at the Marian Koshland Science Museum of the National Academy of Sciences, 525 E St., N.W., Washington, D.C.  Those who cannot attend may watch a live video webcast and submit questions via e-mail at

Seating is limited. If you would like to attend the briefing, please register at:
