Filamentous fungi play important roles in health care, agriculture, and bioprocessing. In many situations, they experience nutrient starvation. In some cases, nutrient starvation detrimentally affects cellular morphology and physiology; in other cases, it can be beneficial. Thus, a better understanding of how starvation influences morphology may result in strategies to control morphology to our advantage. However, little is known about how individual fungal mycelia respond to nutrient starvation at the cellular and molecular level.Microscopy and image analysis The flow chamber assembly containing adhered spores was mounted on an inverted stage microscope (Axiovert 200, Zeiss) equipped ... or Image Pro Plus (v. ... Manual editing was performed when necessary.
