strain selection

strain selection

the means of obtaining desired STRAINS, such as desired MUTANTS (from a MUTATION programme) or desired recombinant clones (formed by GENETIC ENGINEERING), by distinguishing them generally on the basis of one or more specific PHENOTYPES. This may involve the use of a SELECTIVE MEDIUM or a DIFFERENTIAL MEDIUM.

The effect of the same yeast strain was investigated on different musts and the results showed that juice diversity was the primary thiol determinant, (20) with yeast strain selection having a secondary effect.
Substrate concentration and strain selection are crucial to fermentation effectiveness [7].
Most of the time, the vaccine's lackluster performance is blamed on poor strain selection. The World Health Organization tracks which virus strains are circulating and decides which ones should go into the vaccine each year.

Through systematic review of the funding opportunity announcements, we found the following 6 development areas to be the most emphasized: 1) achieving WHO NIC recognition; 2) improving weekly testing for influenza; 3) maintaining sentinel surveillance in [greater than or equal to] 3 sites; 4) reporting weekly data to the WHO FluNet virus monitoring system; 5) sharing specimens with WHO collaborating centers for seasonal vaccine strain selection; and 6) increasing awareness of influenza disease by using national surveillance data to guide decision making for prevention and control strategies.
This demonstrates that the system is an excellent tool for enhanced screening applications and we are confident that fermentation scientists will significantly reduce their time and resource demands when performing enhanced microbial strain selection studies using an ambr 15 fermentation system."
Adjusted multivariable multinomial logistic regression quantitatively determined that the three strains had similar survival probabilities initially with sublethal heating, but outstanding strain selection occurred favoring PCR ribotype 078 as heat lethality increased (P < 0.01; Figure 4).
