Differences between stain and varieities

Asked by dkjainf77 | 9th May, 2019, 10:25: AM

Expert Answer:

Variety is a sub-type of a species that has a certain trait in common with other members of that sub-type, and breeds true for that trait. 

Strain is a sub-type of a microorganism that has a particular genetic variant. In animal breeding, we might refer to a particular breeding stock for a variety as a strain.
