Anthrax DNA

Samples of anthrax spores sent through the mail last fall appear very similar to types produced in the nation's laboratories. NPR's David Kestenbaum reports on a study that attempts to match the genetic code of the anthrax with DNA from four laboratory samples. For security reasons, the study doesn't mention the names or locations of the labs.
