Can't help with the strain issue, but you do know that there is
the protienaceous(protien) and farinatious(carbohydrates)
pathogenicity. From what I can gather (so far) a bacteria grown
on two different mediae (protien or carbohydrate) will yield
different mode pathogenicity.
If I can remember corectly, the protien growth will give an
infection where as the carbohydrate mode will give one toxin
hope this helps some
