Abstract

A novel process for the identification of bacteria has been developed. The process makes use of evolution patterns of molecular fragments generated during the well-controlled thermal degradation of bacterial cells. The process has been shown to be effective in distinguishing ten well-characterized bacterial organisms from each other and in grouping known members of the same genus together. The reproducibility of the method has been demonstrated.
