Abstract

Response surface methodological studies of growth parameters for carotenoid production by Rhodotorula gracilis (ATCC 90950) have been carried out for three parameters employed, namely glucose concentration (%), incubation period (days) and volume of inoculum (ml/100 ml). The results indicated maximum carotenogenesis (0.054%) at a 10% glucose level with a 2 ml/100 ml volume of inoculum for an incubation period of 9 days, which was also verified by experimental data.
