I'd like to hear some consensus. I find it surprising that several
companies sell drop-out media, but I wonder about qualities of media, and
if they follow such generalized recipes as in textbooks like Methods in
Enzym. 192 (Academic Press) or Methods in Yeast Genetics (CSHL Press).
The premixed powder sounds like a lot convenient, but the thing is that
many of us have followed the recipes found in the above books. What if
we get any different growth properties? Should I undergo to test all my
lab strains for growth curves and etc with commercial, premixed dropout
powders? I'd rather do some more weighing. Well, still I would like to
hear from someone who have experience with the premixed media!
