  3. Overview and Lesson Plan 1. Overview and Introduction 1. What is Media? 2. Why is it used? 3. Types of media 2. Carbon Source 3. Nitrogen Source and Buffers 4. Minerals, Oils and Fats, Growth Factors 5. Inducers and Inhibitors; Antifoams

  4. Why do we need Carbon Source? Carbon forms majority of cellular biomass. It is constituent of all organic matter. Autotrophs obtain carbon through atmospheric carbon dioxide by using energy from sunlight or inorganic compounds S. . All other organisms obtain carbon from organic nutrients The carbon source has dual role source of carbon and source of energy.
