Abstract

A method is described for the simulation of bacterial biochemical taxonomic data with randomly inserted variations from typical reactions. This method is applied to data from a group of The simulated data thus generated show good agreement with expected results. The procedure will be useful in evaluating identification algorithms and in analysis of patterns of variation among bacteria.
