Abstract

Summary: A procedure has been evolved which permits an evaluation of mutagenic activity. It appears to be relatively free of experimental bias and analyses the effect of the mutagenic agent more or less independently of selection in the growth medium. It separates the period of phenotypic expression into a distinct unit so that it may be studied separately. Its sensitivity depends on the ability to differentiate cultures containing mutants and its precision depends on the number of flasks employed for subcultures.
