Resistant mutants were isolated to 42 virulent bacteriophages in one strain of E. coli K 12 and tested for resistant or sensitivity to a set of 56 bacteriophages. Most of the mutants fell into 11 groups with respect to their resistance patterns. It was possible to classify the bacteriophages broadly, according to the variety of mutants that were resistant to them.
