hazem thank you for tagging me in this interesting topic you know how much I love mushrooms
@unknown_author First of all I would like to introduce myself to you …
Matab nadim is my name and I am from Egypt and Co founder of @Konnbat which we are working on improve farming by new techniques and also to farm the desert area by hydroponics systems etc…
I am also a biotechnologist and I am really interested on fungus specially mushrooms , three years ago I was in Finland and I worked on a rare kind of mushrooms called truffles (black diamond) popular name for it , A lot of Species of truffles and our middle eastern countries do have the desert truffles which common in Egypt , Tunisia , morocco as well , this kind of mushrooms are a gift from god , we can not farm it years a go but now we can by mimicking the nature as they are grow by association with roots of some trees like oak , hazelnuts etc under ground , the prices vary from 2000 to 4000 Euro per kg . And this is due to the unique flavour , taste , nutritional vale and medical purpose .
I made a research on how we can get a bioactive compound from the truffles mycelium and work on enzymes especially as we can use it in industries and medical purposes .
like lipase , peroxidase , amylase etc . also i thought that we can use it as a biofilm to clean a dirty water
we can get from it anticancer anti inflammatory agent and antimicrobial compound .
if we can think together it could be a great business model if we can make a truffle farm and use it as a great source of protein (food) and also sell it and use the mycelium as a source for our research to get a compound that could help us to improve the community .
About the DNA bar coding , why you do not use sequencing or use a sample way to identification for your bacteria . I want to know more about this
Thank you in advance
