A basal medium used for the selection of common plant pathogens, specifically: Burkholderia glumae, Acidovorax avenae, Pectobacterium carotovorum, Ralstonia solanacearum, and Xanthomonas campestris.
PhytoSelect Basal Medium is formulated based on the SMART media system developed by Kawanishi et al. (2011). SMART is an acronym for: Selective Medium-Design Algorithm Restricted by Two Constraints. The two constraints that are varied to select for different microorganisms are the carbon source and the antibiotics chosen for selection.
This medium is ADP-Free (Animal Derived Products) and includes a gelling agent. It requires the addition of antibiotic(s) and carbon source to be a complete selection medium.
For more information on suggested carbon sources and antibiotics, please see the Product Info sheet.
