Working with yeast strain W303 I noticed that there is always
considerable background growth when cells are plated on minimal FOA
medium plus uracil. If you plate too few cells it might be difficult to
pick a good crop of FOA resistant (ura3-) cells but they will come out
very clear. If more cells are plated you must wait up to 1 week to pick
the colonies that rise above the background, repurify them and re test on
minimal - uracil. This residual growth might be starin dependent.
