Nice to meet you too @winnieponcelet I checked the website of the biolab ReaGent and it's awesome. Really it could be great if we can make new lab in the new Open Village .
And right we should continue with that plan
For the mushroom spawn here in Egypt we use a atmospheric condition in a closed rooms controlled the humidity and other factors that effect the growth of spores of mushrooms as you know our climate can not enhance the growth of spores like in the other countries have forest and mushrooms grows naturally .
We have a suppliers that provide us with the mushrooms spawn and some of guides but also we do not have alot of species mushroom unfortunately .
My dream was to introduce the truffle Eu spices to Egypt and to make a truffle farm that could be great for our economy and also we could make some activity like safari as dogs are used for hunting those kind of mushrooms in the farm to encourage the tourism but i can't unfortunately .
those links are for some published article on truffles I made it when I was in Finland
this article is about detection of some enzymes extracted from two kind of truffles mycelium .
and this article for the test of environmental parameters to control the growth of mycelium
and this article of starter bacteria found with growth of mycelia of chantarella mushrooms that enhance the aroma colour and growth of the mycelium
and this about endogenous bacteria that used as a biocontrol agent to increase the shelf life for truffles .
