Abstract

Summary

API and morphological tests were examined for their ability to distinguish between 37 strains (virulent and avirulent) and 194 strains of closely related species ( and ). In addition, 34 strains of and four of were tested by several other methods that included capsule formation, ability to grow on a selective medium, and sensitivity to phage. It was found that virulent strains of were easily separated from the closely related Bacillus species by most of the test methods; but separation of slightly virulent and avirulent strains of from the closely related species could be done only by API and phage-sensitivity tests.
