The morphology of mycelial fungi in liquid culture effects culture rheology and this in turn may affect product yield. It is therefore important to understand how environmental factors influence mycelial morphology and this paper describes the effect of dilution rate on two strains of Fusarium graminearum, the relatively sparsely branched parental strain (A3/5) and a relatively highly branched "colonial" variant (C106). At any given dilution rate, the concentration of mycelial fragments present… CONTINUE READING
