I think they want to avoid some of the more "trendy" bugs, I can't remember the reasoning but I did read they are avoiding them. I think they are avoiding Anthrax because they are afraid of controversy because of its use/potential use as a bioterror agent. I think bird flu would be silly since there already is flu and many flus are bird flus or part bird flu.
