Lactococcus lactis strains are widely used in industrial dairy fermentations. Conventional phenotypic tests have been used for years to classify members of this species into two subspecies, lactis and cremoris, and play a key role in the choice of strains to be used in particular cheese fermentations. DNA hybridisation techniques have also been used for strain classification, giving rise to two genome homology groups. However, results showed discrepancies between the two methods of… CONTINUE READING
