Isolate a single spore?
    #2677562 - 05/14/04 01:10 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Hi,
if I want to grow monocaryotic mycelium, how can I isolate a single spore? Is there a method at all?
Thank you!

you could do some tricky slide/plate work under a microscope. it's possible for sure. it just may be tedious.

You would need a strong microscope, then?
I just had the idea to make a highly diluted spore solution and use less than a drop of it. But you can't be sure to have monocaryotic mycelium, this way (it might be even unlikely).
