Abstract

SUMMARY

Identification is the practical application of taxonomic knowledge. Dichotomous keys and diagnostic tables form the backbone of everyday identification, but computers will be used in the future. Standardization of methods for characterizing tests, the development of multiple inoculation apparatus, and the use of mass cultures will enable more reliable tests to be carried out and more strains to be tested.
