This is from Doug Hanahan - the author of "J. Mol. Biol. 166(4): 557-580", where 
SOB was first described. SOB = super-optimal broth SOC = SOB with the B 
changed to C for "catabolite repression", indicative of the presence of glucose. 

The original reference for the explanation of the SOB/SOC name is 
D Hanahan <> on 11.09.05.
