The influence of laser irradiation on the accumulation of biomass and exopolysaccharides of some strains of S. commune has been studied. To obtain the inoculum of mycelium of strains S.c.-03, S.c.-01, and S.c.-02 of S.commune was cultured on agar glucose-peptone medium. In the study of the effect of laser irradiation of the mycelium in a surface culture used glucose-peptone liquid nutrient medium. The number of exopolysaccharides was determined by the phenol-sulfur method. The most efficient in terms of biomass accumulation and productivity of exopolysaccharide synthesis was the strain S.c.-03 of S.commune – under the action of laser irradiation of mycelium with red light (wavelength 635 nm) mycelium biomass increased by 75.3% and the number of exopolysaccharides increased by 70%.
