You might try a lit search on Jim Gloer, a professor at the Univ. of
Iowa, who has isolated many novel organic molecules from sclerotia.  I
think he does grow some fungi for the production of sclerotia for this
purpose, so there might be media, growth, isolation information
available from his publications.    Tom McCloud
