"Wow, very nice Ian!
Having a look at physarum under the TEM is something I'd love to do, but have not been able to convince anyone its worth the TEM time :).
Do you think any part of physarum would be thin enough as is for inspection…"
"I don't fully remember whether I vented the petri dish during the timelapse too many times, generally I try to minimise that for practical reasons. I think the liquid formation at the lid did prevent physarum from heading to that particular…"
