Recent Advances in Mushroom Breeding Strategies

Increasing the yield and quality of crops as well as resistance to diseases are the primary goals for mushroom breeders in mushroom research. Methods of mass selection based on natural chance mutation as well as cross breeding and transgenic breeding are some of the methods carried out for this purpose. Protoplast fusion between different mushroom species, for example white and brown oyster mushrooms are experimented to obtain high productivity and long storage life.
