Abstract:

Madeleine Jolit provides information on her experience in lab. The author and her group were isolating mutants and carrying out the first assays of amylomaltase and galactosidase. Jacques Monod invented the “bactogène,” an apparatus designed to maintain “a continuous process for the cultivation of microorganisms, involving continuous and simultaneous addition of nutrient medium into, and removal of culture liquid from a fermenter." Monod was busy setting up his new service, welcoming and taking care of his students both in the lab and at the university. He would work only occasionally at the bench now, participating in some permease assays, having a look at the petri dishes. The author is thankful to this unique atmosphere which everyone in her group had created. She had known many labs in France and abroad, but had never seen anything like the one she had worked at. In that sense, she and her group had been very lucky.
