Anthrax is a strain of pathogenic bacteria; Bacillus anthracis. Therefor biologists propagate them in petri dishes either in, or on a nutrient rich medium, two specific types of medium are Anthrax Blood Agar, and Cereus Ident Agar. Once they produce enough of the bacteria they dry and mill the spores in order to make them fine enough to float easily, this called the weaponization process. They can then send it to people in letters, or infect larger populations by crop dusting downtown.
