Abstract

The sensitivity of representative strains to phage isolated from species of this and other actinomycete genera was studied. Activity spectra of phage were closely correlated with the wall chemotypes of the test strains. The limits of the genus as defined by phage sensitivity corresponded closely to those indicated by chemical and numerical taxonomy. The value of using phage sensitivity as an aid to the definition of actinomycete genera is emphasized.
