SLIME MOLDS!!

Did you know that Slime Mold, despite its moldy name, is not a fungus? As an organism capable of inching along like a caterpillar or of pseudopodia, Slime Mold is a truly unique organism.

Here’s a wonderful NYTimes slideshow titled “Beauty and the Blob,” with images showcasing the different types of slime molds.  To all those people who think they’re disgusting, I say they’re beautiful 🙂

One of our undergraduate alumni , Emerson Glassey, is teaching a class on slime molds at Stanford’s Splash program this year (October 29, 30 for all those people interested!) and I’ll provide an update on his class, hopefully with some pictures!
