Abstract

SUMMARY: A method for isolating and identifying high acid-yielding mutants of is described. This involves cultivation of the organisms on absorbent paper soaked in an indicator medium. The advantages of the technique and the criteria used for selecting biochemically interesting mutants are briefly described. The greater acid production of mutants selected by paper culture has been confirmed by comparing yields of citric acid in surface and submerged fermentations with those given by the wild type strain.
