Dried fruit cloning?
    #451197 - 11/08/01 02:01 AM (15 years, 2 months ago)

I guess after reading some threads on strain isolation, the best way to go about it is to take a nice looking fruit, clone it, and go from there. AFOAF recently cased some cakes and on the second flush came up with some really nice looking fruits! He's already begun drying them but was curious: if he in the "near" future got some agar plates, could he use sections from the dried mushies or is it too late at that point (have they lost their effectiveness in the drying process)?

Any help/info would be greatly appretiated. Thanks.

I would say that the cells die when dried, so you wouldn't be able to clone. The problem is that mushroom cells are not thought to outlast, like many bacteria cell do transforming themself into endospores.
For mushrooms you would have to use the spores, produced in a totally different way than in bacteria, and start again.

It is possable.
It is very difficult.
you, in all likelyhood, will not succede.
I know of one person who was successful, and that was with the help of nature..

I'm pretty sure that you won't get dry mushroom tissue to "come back to life" so you can clone that particular strain, unless it is scelortia (hope I spelled that right). Although you can (with some luck) use some dry mushroom gill particles and get some spores to germinate, you would probably have problems with contam though, and it would require some agar transfers (which i do not use), and this doesn't accomplish the original goal of strain isolation.
It is best to use fresh material when you clone. I hear that you can store a syringe of mycelium water for quite some time and it will remain viable.
