74. Studies on the effect
Exposure of the medium (composed of optimum concentrations of salts and sugar) to ultra-violet light renders it less effective for the growth of yeast. The development of the toxicity increases with duration and intensity of irradiation. An exposure of seven hours through quartz at about l5 cm from a quartz mercury vapor lamp affects the medium in such a way that yeast will show practically no growth in the medium. The work is being continued in order to obtain quantitative results and to explain the phenomenon.
