Comparison of phenotypic diversity and DNA heterogeneity in a population of soil bacteria.


The phenotypic diversity of about 200 bacterial strains isolated from soil was compared with the genotypic diversity of the same population. The strains were phenotypically characterized by the API 20B test system. The results of these tests were subjected to cluster analysis, which revealed 41 biotypes at 80% similarity. The five dominating biotypes… (More)
