Well, she worked in England. But she is Welsh :-)

There were some tricks to making the minimal medium - mainly
mixing the phosphates in the right order to avoid precipitating out.

E.coli and PAO1 seemed happy enough on the same minimal media though.

We used (Pat Clarke's lab ca. 1975) a trace mineral supplement (about
10 strange elements I seem to recall). I never checked how essential
they were.
