Initial purpose of this page

When I started with Select Agent Program as a taxonomy of hazardous pathogens, I soon realized that there was a lack of consistency about what went into the article about a disease, and about the article about the pathogen of the disease. At the moment, Bacillus anthracis is hard to follow, giving due regard to the differences that will have to exist among articles on bacterial, viral, fungal, protozoal, and even prion pathogens.

I'll bring this to the biology forun, as I understand Health Sciences is no more. Howard C. Berkowitz 03:32, 1 June 2008 (CDT)
