  • Overview

    In a scene from the recent Bruce Willis movie, Live Free or Die Hard, anthrax sensors were triggered, prompting evacuation of the FBI headquarters. Yet do such sensors really exist, or was this just another flight of Hollywood imagination? Our guest, Doctor Nicholas Bergman, reviews the nation's multi-faceted approach to defense against anthrax. Dr. Bergman received his PhD in biochemistry and molecular biology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is currently an Assistant Professor in the School of Biology at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta. He has published a paper examining some of the genomic properties of Anthrax in the Journal of Bacteriology.
