Diversification of Pseudomonas corrugata 2140 produces new phenotypes altered in GC-FAME, BIOLOG, and in vitro inhibition profiles and taxonomic identification

Journal Article
Barnett, S. J., Alami, Y., Singleton, I., & Ryder, M. H. (1999)
Diversification of Pseudomonas corrugata 2140 produces new phenotypes altered in GC-FAME, BIOLOG, and in vitro inhibition profiles and taxonomic identification. Canadian journal of microbiology, 45(4), 287-298. https://doi.org/10.1139/w99-006
Bacteria are known to rapidly produce new phenotypes, but it is unclear how phenotype "plasticity" relates to studies on the population ecology of bacteria in complex environm...
