Single dropout formulation ( without L-Leucine) of Complete Supplement Mixture (CSM) of amino acids for S. cerevisiae growth media.
The selection of plasmids in yeast is based on the use of auxotrophic mutant strains that cannot grow without a specific media component (an amino acid, purine or pyrimidine). Transformation with a plasmid containing the mutated gene enables the transformant to grow on a medium lacking the required component. This CSM-Dropout medium create a richer medium for better yield and growth rate, and increase the probability of successful transformations when screening libraries or performing gene knock-outs.
