Mathematical modelling of fungal growth and function

Graeme Boswell, Mark Fischer, Luke Heaton, Daniel Hofstadler, Marcus Roper, Fordyce Davidson

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This contribution is based on the six presentations given at the Special Interest Group meeting on Mathematical modelling of fungal growth and function held during IMC9. The topics covered aspects of fungal growth ranging across several orders of magnitude of spatial and temporal scales from the biomechanics of spore ejection, vesicle trafficking and hyphal tip growth to the form and function of mycelia networks. Each contribution demonstrated an interdisciplinary approach to questions at specific scales. Collectively, they represented a significant advance in the multi-scale understanding of fungal biology.
