Phenotype methods

Phenotype methods

Distinguish samples based on observable characteristics of the isolated bacteria that might have been acquired from exposure to different host species or environments, such as resistance to certain antibiotic or profiles of carbon utilization. These methods are based on an effect of an organism’s genes that actively produce a biochemical substance. The type and quantity of these substances is what is measured during the laboratory analysis.
