An international network of/for intelligent organisms
I've been talking to a researcher who reckons I'm not getting mature colonies from spores because I need spores from more than one individual - related swarmers just don't like to get together.
So, does anyone have a strain on the go that didn't ultimately come from Carolina biological supplies? and if so would they be willing to post me a sclerotium? I'd like to be able to display a full life cycle for schools science outreach work.
I don't have a different strain but I have been able to complete the life cycle (plasmodium-spores-amoebas-plasmodia) with Carolina stock, which means it must be a diploid plasmodium that they supply.
