Sources of bacteria in agar?

Post by ilovebiology77 » Sun Feb 26, 2012 12:25 am

Hi there,

so I'm going to grow some bacteria on agar from yoghurt samples but was wondering, apart from the bacteria in yoghurt, what other sources might the bacteria come from?

Which agar could I use so that I only have lactic acid bacteria growing (or what alterations can I make) ?

Many thanks!
