To support a project to generate sporeless strains of the commercially 
attractive mushroom Pleurotus (oyster mushroom) we search students with 
experience in molecular biology or microbiology. 
The following techniques will be used/learned: 

- generation and screening of a genome- and cDNA-library
- development of a transformation protocol for Pleurotus spp
- protoplasting of Pleurotus spp
- CHEF gel electrophoresis for the characterization of chromosomal DNA
- southern and northern blotting

Students interested to work on this subject for a period of 6 to 9 month 
should send e-mails to mushex at or letters to The Mushroom 
Experimental Station
				  Peelheideweg 1
				  5960 AA Horst
				  The Nederlands

Accommodation will be financed by the Mushroom Experimental Station.
