I am researching for the material and methods for the fermentation of E. coli
with optimum B-gal production. I just completed a shake flask experiment and
decided to use whey as our Carbon source. Our results showed that this method
gave higher growth rates and B-gal production that lactose. I am planning
another shaker experiment before I go to the fermenter. I am curious about
heat shock and B-gal production. Does anyone have any data on stress of
E. coli and synthesis?
Please email me at stat at wpi.edu with any theories I should consider
in my experiment.
Thanks in advance,
