Abstract

SUMMARY

Previous work has suggested that there are six divisions among the viridans-like streptococci of man. Reciprocal transformations were carried out between strains classified as agg., agg. and agg. The results of the quantitative transformation reactions confirmed a classification of these strains arrived at partly by traditional methods and partly by numerical methods.
