Chemotaxis in Physarum polycephalum Kit



Advanced - For experienced high school and college classes; requires some technical skill.

For a class of 30. Developed by Donna Bozzone, Saint Michael's College. With this kit, students design experiments to test the ability of Physarum to respond to various chemical stimuli. P. polycephalum, a plasmodial slime mold, is an excellent organism for exploring chemotaxis. Many microorganisms, and certain specialized cells in complex multicellular organisms, respond to chemical cues and either move toward or away from chemical signals. With teacher instructions.

FREE 1-year access to digital resources that support NGSS instruction included.
