General Guidelines

To make 1L of liquid media:

1. In a 2L beaker dissolve everything EXCEPT the sugar (dextrose/galactose/raffinose), amino acids, nucleotides and antibiotics (if any) in ~500 mL water.

2. QS to the appropriate volume (Final volume - volume of sugar and amino acid solutions to be added) with water.

3. Autoclave for 40 min

4. Let cool in the 50°C water bath

5. Use sterile technique to add the sugar, amino acids, nucleotides and antibiotics. Mix.


To make 1L worth of agar plates (~ 40-50 yeast plates, 70-80 bacterial plates):

1. In a 2L beaker dissolve everything EXCEPT the sugar (dextrose/galactose/raffinose), amino acids, nucleotides and antibiotics (if any) in ~500 mL water.

2. QS to the appropriate volume (Final volume - volume of sugar and amino acid solutions to be added) with water.

3. Add 20g of Bacto agar (2% W/V)

4. Autoclave for 40 min

5. Let cool in the 50°C water bath

6. Use sterile technique to add the sugar, amino acids, nucleotides and antibiotics. Mix and pour.


Yeast Media

YePD/YPD

For 1L:

Peptone 20g

Yeast Extract 10g

50% Glucose 40mL

(Plate only) Agar 20g

YPAD,2X

For 1L:

Yeast Extract 20g

Peptone 40g

50% Glucose 80mL

Adenine 200mg

(Plate only) Agar 20g

SD min

For 1L:

Yeast Nitrogen Base w/o Amino Acids 6.7g

50% Glucose 40mL

(Plate only) Agar 20g

SD Dropout

For 1L:

Yeast Nitrogen Base w/o Amino Acids 6.7g

50% Glucose 40mL

10X Amino acid droupout solution 100mL

(Plate only) Agar 20g

5' FOA Plates

For 1L worth of plates:

1. Dissolve 6.7g of Yeast Nitrogen Base w/o Amino Acids, 50mg of uracil, and 20g Agar in 300mL of water. Mix well.

2. QS to 360mL

3. Autoclave for 40 min

4. Let cool in 50°C water bath.

5. Use sterile technique to add the following: 40mL 50% glucose, 100mL 10X AA complete

6. Add 500mL of 5' FOA solution. Mix and pour

W303 Spo Media

For 1L:

10 g potassium acetate (1% final)

1 g yeast extract (0.1% final)

0.5 g dextrose (0.05% final)


If any amino acids are required, add each at the concentration listed under Amino Acid Solution, Complete.

This nitrogen-deficient “starvation” medium contains acetate as a carbon source to promote high levels of respiration, which induces diploid yeast strains to sporulate. Sporulation can be carried out in liquid media or on plates (add 20g agar/L media).

YPA medium (2% potassium acetate, 2% peptone, and 1% yeast extract) is excellent for inducing high levels of respiration in cells prior to sporulation.

Bacterial Media

LB (Luria Broth)

For 1L:

Trypton 10g

Yeast Extract 5g

NaCl 10g

10N NaOH 100μL

(Plate only) Agar 20g

TB (Terrific Broth)

For 1L:

Trypton 10g

Yeast Extract 20g

Glycerol 4mL

(Plate only) Agar 20g

TB Amp plates

To make TB-Amp plates, add 1mL of 1000X ampicillin stock (at 100mg/mL) to 1L of TB media after it has been cooled down to 50°C. Mix and pour.

X-gal

X-gal is located in the -20 freezer as a 20 mg/mL stock in DMSO. It is stored in a light block container. Final concentration for blue-white selection is 40 ug/mL.

4. QS to 1L with water

5. Autoclave for 30 min

20% Galactose

For 1L:

1. In a 2L beaker dissolve 200g of galactose in 500 mL water
