"Hi Gaspard, thanks! Sorry for the late reply. I haven't automated the process yet, so I am scoring everything by hand from time lapse videos. When I get to it, I will probably use a raspberry pi and a processing script. How is your project…"

"Unfortunately, I am away from home, and do not have access to plasmodium.. Maybe Heather Barnett would know a local source? Roland van Dierendonck has plasmodium also, but he will only arrive on Thursday. Maybe he can priority mail some?"

Q. Eva - Would you like to be eaten?
