Description

The total acid hydrolysates of 160 strains representing 12 species and subspecies of Bacteroides were analyzed for cellular fatty acids by capillary gas-liquid chromatography. Fatty acid profiles were analyzed mathematically to generate ratios among selected components. Certain of these ratios appeared to be characteristic, permitting separation of the species and subspecies tested.
