MUTATIONS OF BACTERIAL VIRUSES AFFECTING THEIR HOST RANGE

S E Luria
1945 Genetics  
The strains By and Bal have been called A and C in previous papers (DELBRUCK and LURIA 1g4z), in which the interest was focused on their use as indicator strains for plating mixed virus suspensions rather than on their mutational origin. 3 Several of the experiments with virus y' were done using a strain Byaz instead of strain By, because our stock of strain By (obtained from strain B in 1941) had recently, in the course of subculturing, become partially sensitive to virus y. Strain Bycuz,
