My short bio: I am a fungal geneticist interested in the mechanisms underlying behavioral manipulation.

Hi everyone! Thanks so much for asking all these awesome questions! I am sorry if I didn't get to answer yours specifically but there were just too many for me to get to. Please read the answers I was able to give. Maybe they provide you with some of the answers you were looking for. After an entire Monday of typing frantically I am going to sign off now though. Thanks for the awesome conversations and please consider backing my microryza project if you want to keep up to date on our research!
