BIOSCHAMP & the analysis on casing materials by IRNASA CSIC

During the BIOSCHAMP Project, the Institute of Natural Resources and Agrobiology of Salamanca (IRNASA-CSIC) is in charge of carrying out the quantitative analysis of microbial population and structure of substrate and casing materials (peat-free casing soil as carrier of selected microbiota with biostimulant and biocontrol activity) along the mushroom cultivation cycle through the analysis of the Phospholipid Fatty Acid (PLFAs) content of the microbial groups.

(…) Phospholipid fatty acid analysis (PLFA) is used to quantify total viable biomass and provide a general profile of the microbial community. Phospholipid fatty acids are a main component of the cell membrane (“the skin”) of all microbes.

All in all, the work of IRNASA-CSIC will contribute to the development of diagnostic tools to track biostimulants in casings.
