||Plasmids were introduced into B. cereus ATCC14579 strain using the previously described electroporation protocol (Turgeon et al., 2006). All Bacillus strains were grown at 30 °C, 225 rpm in trypticase soy broth (TSB) (Difco Laboratories, Detroit, MI) or on trypticase soy agar (TSA) (Difco Laboratories). PCN normalized with the 16S gene copy number.
