Abstract:

For ascertaining the affiliation of bacteria with a specific genus, species or subspecies it is necessary to determine their basic properties. These properties concern their morphology, tinctorial characteristics and the various regions of their vital activity, the nature of their growth and reproduction, their metabolic processes, antigenic structure, and interrelationship with bacteriophages. Thus, the identification of a culture of any bacteria is based upon determining their characteristics. The report presents methods for the identification of bacteria.
