General description

YPD agar is a complete yeast culture medium for most yeast species, especially for Saccharomyces cerevisiae. It is also known as YEPD and comprises of yeast extract, bacteriological peptone, glucose, and agar. The components of this media provide all the necessary nutrients for yeast growth. The essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids in the medium acts carbon and nitrogen source.

Application

YPD agar has been used as a culture media:
  • to cultivate S. cerevisiae strains to find a long-term preservation method for a deep space biosensor mission
  • for yeast strains in in vitro broth microdilution (BMD) based on minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC)
  • for Zymoseptori triciti strains for virulence studies

Preparation Note

1. Suspend 65 g in 1 L of distilled water.
2. Heat to boiling while stirring to dissolve all ingredients completely.
3. Autoclave for 15 minutes at 121°C.

Protocols

Yeasts are considered model systems for eukaryotic studies as they exhibit fast growth and have dispersed cells. Yeast cultures can be grown, maintained, and stored in liquid media or on agar plates using techniques similar to those for bacterial cultures.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
