Edinburgh Minimal Medium - low Nitrogen (EMMlowN)
Modification of EMM used for crosses and to test mating types, but richer than the other crossing medium EMM-N which allows for some growth and thus more asci. Like in most fungi, low nitrogen induces mating in pombe too.
Note that this is different from PMG which has much more Glutamic acid.
