Killer sensitivity patterns as a tool for the fingerprinting of strains within the yeast speciesKluyveromyces lactis andK. marxianus

Summary

A simple procedure based on differential sensitivity to a given panel of “killer yeasts” allows the discrimination of strains within the speciesK. lactis andK. marxianus. The proposed method was found to be reproducible, readily discriminatory, and easy to perform without specialized equipment. All strains within the species are characterized by a specific, individual sensitivity pattern (killer formula).
