Glossary Term: Isolate Selection

Cloning the most ideal mushroom from a multispore cultivation is one approach to selecting an isolate. Some instances of isolate selection will be based on the end result (one or two particularly desirable individual mushrooms) – versus guessing the best mycelium to choose from a petri dish. A bit more sector selection may still be necessary after cloning since an individual mushroom can be composed of more than one strain of mycelium. This method uses far fewer petri dishes and time than transferring mycelium from dish to dish with the same desire.
