The Nutrition of Bacteria, with Special Reference to Bacillus Influenzae (Pfeiffer)1

  • S. S. Shri Kent (a1)
Extract

The experimental work on which the paper is based was undertaken with the object of investigating the factors which influence the growth of bacteria in various culture media. The B. influenzae was selected as the best organism because of the comparative difficulty of obtaining growth on ordinary media, and the feebleness of the growth when obtained. The importance of food accessory substances, or “Vitamins” for the proper growth and nourishment of animals is generally recognised, and the influence of the same on the nutrition of bacteria has been occupying the attention of various investigators during the last few years.
