The effects of culture parameters on the conidial germination and yields of Ophiocordyceps sinensis

Ophiocordyceps sinensis is an insect-born fungus with various biological and pharmacological activities. Artificial cultivation of the fungus-insect complex with fruiting body is not successful for the market mainly due to the lack of optimal conditions for fungus-insect interaction. Mass production of the pathogenic conidia as fungal inocula for effective insect infection is one of the critical steps. In...
