It's just to make sure the culture is clean - even if the germination plate looks clean oftentimes the myc has germinated over top or next to bacteria or mold colonies. So make a transfer to another plate and use that to inoculate your grains. Often I'll do two transfers to be safe.
Whenever you make a transfer, you are probably cutting out at least some of the genetics, but it doesn't matter. You are just looking for a clean MS culture to inoculate grains with.
In a culture germinated from spores there are hundreds to thousands of strains present. If I am isolating strains it typically takes me 8 to 10 transfers before I see obvious sectoring. Then once I take a transfer from each sector to a new plate, those cultures might still show some sectors and I might still have to make another transfer or two of each of the next plates until they become single sector isolated strains. At that point, I'll have 10 - 20 different strains, which I label, fruit and test for potency + growing factors. There might only be one or two good ones, if I'm lucky.
Strain isolation takes a lot of work and patience!
It makes more sense for us home cultivators to clone. That is still quite a bit of work (and eating a lot of mushrooms if you wanna test potency πŸ˜‚), taking lots of clones and fruiting them out, searching for potent, high yielding fruiters.
