Growth and Differentiation in Physarum Polycephalum
Edited by William F. Dove & Harold P. Rusch


Physarum polyccphalum is commonly referred to as a true slime mold, or myxomycete. Providing a basic foundation for the latest work in the cell and developmental biology of true slime molds, these critical essays review five areas of research: nuclear structure, replication, expression, genetics, and differentiation.
