The growth mechanisms of the promising research subjects of biotechnology – basidiomycetes mushrooms of the genus Coriolus on agar mediums

This paper presents the research of the influence of a nutrition medium composition on the cultural-morphological properties and the growth rate of vegetative mycelia of 31 strains of mushrooms of the genus Coriolus. We validate our approach with the experiments, showing that the growth rate depends not only on the nutrition medium composition, but also on the strain features of cultures. Specifically, we determine the optimum agar mediums, notably potato-glucose, synthetic Norkrans and malt-agar with a decoction of oak bark for cultivation of mushrooms of the genus Coriolus.
