B. subtilis is one of the oldest known bacterial organisms, having been described by Ehrenberg as early as 1838. It was later more accurately described and placed in its present classification by Gohn in 1872. It has served as the basis of many investigations, and it is doubtful if any other aerobic sporeforming organism is now as well known as this.
