What is your interest in slime moulds? (we need to know you're not a bot or spamster)
I am interested in allorecognition, so colonial unicellular organisms (either acellular or cellular) are very interesting. I recently got some physarum from Carolina Biological and am looking for tips on growth and experiments to do.
