teonan so if take spores from two different strains and mix them in a syringe, and pour them in petri dishes w/ agar...99.9% of them will not fruit? how do i know which of the spores are monykarons?

Bleuboxo I am no expert either, but you I think that you need to isolate a single spore from each strain of mushroom and grow them together. And even if you manage to do this there is no guarantee that the new strain you produced will be a good one, it might not even fruit. But I guess you can try, mabey you will create a new "super strain".

Good Luck

i will try ofcourse and i will try for a very long time until i have found out the way to do it. teonan---this is what ive got so far, all i need is the information my life is very boring sitting around the house and cultivating mushrooms and working. thats about it. i have plenty of time to try experiments. there are two kinds of spores--monokaryotic and dikaryons---i need to find the monokaryotic spores of two strains and grow them together, fruit them, and try them. if im lucky anyways ill still be responsible for making up a new strain, you can bet that all the spore vendors will have that strain to sell. im very confident about my work as im sure most people are i just like to take a little more time than most people on accomplishing the things i want to get done.

if there is a way in there is a way out, unless someone locked you in a mental faculty then i guess you are stuck like my father. good luck to everybody---$1,000 CASH to anybody who makes a new strain and you have my signature on the bottom. PEACE

You might want to head out to the library and read about fungal biology and physiology. I have glanced over some info on this stuff. I belive that all spores produce monokarytic mycellium, when two monokarytic mycellums come together they form a dikarotic mycellum. Like I said there is a lot of info on this at the library just go there and read. I will go sometime in the near future and see if I can dig up some accurate info for you.

Man you must have alot of time!!!! When a spore germinates it is a monokaryon, it has one nucleus. This monokaryon will mate with compatible monokaryons, undergo karyogamy and form a dikaryon, the dikaryon if you are lucky enough will grow up and produce fruiting bodies. I never said 99 % would not fruit. A lot of them will fruit. It is just a long process. You have to first dilute the spores a hell of a lot, each strain seperately, germinate them and isolate individual monokaryons. These individuals have to be put together and see if they mate to form dikaryons. 3/4 of the spores will mate outside their spore race. The problem is some will be false matings, producing non fruiting dikaryons, the rest will be an assortment of good, bad, and worse fruiters. Imagine testing 100- 1000's- 10,000 strains. If you just mixed two different spore races in the same syringe, the same thing will happen, but some of the resulting strains will resemble each parent spore race, and some will be different. The problem is who cares. These vendors are selling spore races, not strains. You buy a Gulf coast cubensis print, because that is the Geographical location, from where it came. If you crossed it with a Tai strain, the offspring aren't going to be exceptionaly different. Most breeding work is done to enhance growth characteristics, thickness of fruits, etc.. Obtaining a higher yielding strain. But once the strain is produced, it can only be distributed as a culture not a print.
If you really want to do some culture work, get a print of mexicana from sporeworks, and do some breeding to obtain a strain that will produce sclerotia in vitro. This would be a better use of your free time. Some where in the genetics of these spores exists a monokaryon that is compatible with one of it's siblings, that will mate to produce a Dikaryon that will be one of those legendary strains.

teonan thanks for all the information. ive heard alot about crossbreeding and it seems to be alot of work. this is my last question, im interested in the second paragragh about the mexicana strain.

i have to fruit them and clone a mexicana species that will produce sclerotia....after that i have to find two monokaryons and mate them with eachother from the same species? and if im lucky this will fruit...correct?>

No, people are having trouble isolating a strain from the mexicana that produce sclerotia invitro. I'm suggesting, that if you want to try breeding, this would be a good canidate for any attempts. Germinate spores, isolate the monokaryons, and try breeding them to find that special strain.

Buy the TMC, it has a section on genetics and one on breeding. That will clear up a lot of the misinformation and myths I've read here. Actually, you could just search these boards. You might find more misinformation, but you will also likely find nearly everything that's in TMC.....

But it's only like 16.95 if you shop around....

first of all, how far as your classic education come along?
university? college? community college? high school?
that makes a big difference as to what methods are available to you.
second, read TMC, GGMM, a good genetics book, a good biology book, and perhaps a good chemestry book.. a genetics lab procedure book wouldnt hurt.
if you attend a univeristy, put in a request to make use of the mycology lab, practice with legal fungus first: imagine a garden giant X portobella.. <although this is highly improbable..
there are two approaches that you may try:
rather than use large petri dishes, use smaller containers (you can get squares or "mini" pitri dishes).
isolate single spores from each strain, place in close proximity to each other on the medium.
incubate apropriately, visually observe result.
staments has pictures of quicker tests that can be run to determine the ability of strains/species to exchange genetic information.
second:
as with the cloneing process used to create "dolly", you can manufacture a false nucleus with both sets of genetic information, and implant into a single mycelium cell from which the previous nucleus has been removed. personally i doubt that this is fesable with current methods for fungus, however it has been proven functional with sheep, and humans.

im guessing you will never do either of these, judgeing by the manner in which you asked these questions.

Mycofile what misinformation are you refering to. The TMC has very little info on breeding. Better sources would be books and journals on mushroom breeding from an Agricultural University. But the TMC is a must read for anyone interested in propagating any Funny mushroom.

KARYOGAMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehhehehehehehhehehehe
Sometimes I wonder who is really on this site!!!!!!!!!

well for one, things like:

"there are two kinds of spores--monokaryotic and dikaryons---i need to find the monokaryotic spores of two strains and grow them together, fruit them, and try them."

Aren't uncommon to read on these boards.

The general intro chapters from TMC would clear things like that up.

I wasn't trying to imply that somebody in this thread was trying to spread misinfo, but simply that a lot of it can be read on these boards.

Granted the section on breeding in TMC isn't very long, but it contains a lot of information. More than enough to come up with a workable mindset and plan.

Yes there are better sources, but this guy sounds like he needs to read TMC anyway, and journals aren't gonna give him the basics he needs.

" but ive never seen this one posted!!!!!! how is it not uncommon??? I THINK I ASKED THAT!!!!!! its glad to SEE YOU agree with me mycophile. i CAN BE SUCH a NERD sometimes!!! =) haha. no misinfo at all im reading you loud and clear MAD SCIENTIST!!!!!! im glad i post all this great information so people can read and learn!!!! MY AIM IS TO SATIFY BLEUBOXO--yes i think paul stamets defintley need to read that book, i HIGHLY FUCKIN DOUBT YOU cares about journals!! he ARE a very SMART guy but the journals suck...ANYWAYS, tell me more about your surfing abilities, DONT YOU? i LOVE MY job!!!

ps.which POINT OF VIEW??

I was not saying that people were not in college, i was asking who was.. there are alot of high schoolers here who *think they know everything..

sattelite controll? didnt know that was a major...
if so, i have a few quick Q's for you..
What are the transponders on G3R? in what orbit is it located?
what about G11 and GE1? what are they differences?
hmmm
:P
and anyway, technilogical and biological are somewhat disparate fields.. they do not necessarily cross over..
im a dork too.. but ive spent a fair amount of time in biological labs..

DinoMyc.. I would agree.. anyone in college is at a disadvantage. Paying loads of dough to learn decades old technology. It's a farce. Best bet is to keep up w/ current journals. They're in most college libraries but not usually part of any curriculum.

    #328695 - 05/29/01 12:56 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

hmmm...obviously Ive never attempted this, but I think a crossbreeding program would go something like this...first, dilute 1 or 2 drops from a standard spore syringe into about 150ml sterile water, use this to make 10 or so syringes, do this for each of your 2 strains...innoculate 100 or so petris for each strain, incubate...at first sign of germination, subculture all germination points to seperate petris...at 2-3 germination points in each petri, you could easily end up w/ 200+ petris for each of 2 strains...once these start to colonize, you will need to make backups, at least 3-4 petris of each isolate to prevent loss from contams, etc...this will give you 600+ petris for each strain, a total of over 1200 petris...at this point you will need a high power microscope and the ability to make good slides...make a slide of each isolate & check for clamp connections...if these are present, the isolate is dikaryon, monokaryons will not have clamp connections...throw out dikaryons, keep monokaryons...this will somewhat reduce your petri collection...now the fun part...once your monokaryon isolates have colonized, subculture isolates of the 2 strains together in the same petri...make 3-4 petris for each attempted mating for backups...once these start to colonize, subculture the mated mycellium into yet more petris w/ backups...once again, make slides of each culture & check them w/ the microscope for clamp connections, which indicate a dikaryon which hopefully has the ability to fruit...throw out any cultures lacking clamp connections...now you can innoculate each culture into 3-4 half pints of sterilized grain or etc...obviously this will give you a fair number of jars...let colonize, leave substrate in jars & case, put into fruiting chambers...probably 3-4 large rubbermaid tubs w/ inviromental controls would be sufficient...hopefully most of these will fruit, clone the best 10 fruiting strains onto multiple petris...innoculate these into 3-4 quarts of sterilized grain or etc, let colonize, case & fruit in trays, use several trays per strain for backup...check for eveness of pinset, spore production, yield, etc...keep subculturing & fruiting until you are left w/ one very exceptional fruiting strain, make multiple culture slants & store...congratulations, you now have a hybrid strain! Obviously this is a hell of a lot of work & a major pain in the ass... I can only see people going through all this to create a "supersrain" of oysters or etc for extreme big-time commercial production...But, if you have loads of time & money to burn, wtf, right? peace

One should not make that much petri's.
If you dillute a single strain like -1, -2, -3, -4, -5 and put the last three on agar, you can count the spores wich grow, so when having found the concentration of spores dillute until having 1spore/ml. This has to be put on agar several times. This has 2 be done with the other strain 2 and put on agar on the other strain.
