Minimal SD Bases
Minimal synthetic defined (SD) bases include a yeast nitrogen base, ammonium sulfate, and a carbon source, either dextrose (Minimal SD Base) or galactose and raffinose (Minimal SD Agar Base Gal/Raf). Dropout (DO) supplements can be added to the Minimal SD Base to make a synthetic, defined medium lacking the specified nutrients. The SD bases are available with or without agar premixed in the medium. Each package of Minimal SD Base makes 10 L of medium. Each package of Minimal SD Base Gal/Raf makes 5 L.
