    Here, we summarize the composition and uses of Schizosaccharomyces pombe media and discuss key issues for consideration in the generation of S. pombe cultures. We discuss the concept of “culture memory,” in which the growth state and stress experienced by a strain during storage, propagation, and starter culture preparation can alter experimental outcomes at later stages. We also describe the triggers that are widely used to manipulate signaling through the environment sensing pathways.
