Glossary Term: Sector Selection

An individual mushroom can be composed of more than one strain of mycelium. When agar is used to study multi-spore growth, it is very common to see a multitude of strains (in the same petri plate) with visible barriers of division (open spaces of incompatibility). A sector will have a distinct line of separation between it and adjacent ones. When studying strains and attempting to select the best mushroom culture (fruiting abundance, aesthetic appearance, taste, etc) sector selection involves picking the right area(s) of the mycelium for studies in spawn creation and substrate growth.
