isolating strains?
    #897545 - 09/21/02 03:55 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

What this buisness with isolating strains? Is this akin to breeding wolves into domestic dogs? Is it possible to create a new strain?

In reply to:

People usually isolate strains so that they are able to work with a single and predictable genetic expression. This is very similar to why marijuana growers like to use clones.

In reply to:

Not really. It's more like breeding many litters at once, picking out the best dog, and then making clones from it.

In reply to:

it possible to create a new strain?



I'm sure it's possible, but I don't think the effort would be worth it.

Not really a new strain, because although the isolate may perform well, the spores that these fruits will produce will be very similar to the original mushroom spore-print and not an improved genetic version like the isolate
