Abstract

SUMMARY: A punched-card system of identification by computer is described, whereby matching at over 85% with the description of a recognized Saccharomyces species constitutes identification. The system is based on a set of 39 invariable descriptions of species, so defined that no species is related at higher than 85% matching coefficient to any other species.
