A BASIC program is offered that reduces data resulting from mixed-species inoculations into Biolog microplates. The procedures of the program are supported by a critical review of the literature relating to Biolog data reduction. The availability of standardized, accelerated data reduction protocols will facilitate study comparisons and allow efficient evaluation of new data reduction approaches.
