Francisella tularensis is a pathogenic species of Gram-negative bacteria and the causative agent of tularemia or rabbit fever. It is a fastidious, facultative intracellular bacterium which requires cysteine for growth. Due to its ease of spread by aerosol and high virulence, F. tularensis is classified as a Class A Select Agent by the U.S. government, along with other potential agents of bioterrorism such as Yersinia pestis, Smallpox and the Filoviruses.
