Section 2: Filamentous fungal growth kinetics

A review by Liam J. McNulty

Kinetic analyses show that fungal filamentous growth can be interpreted on the basis of a regular cell cycle, and therefore encourage the view that mycelial growth and morphology can be described mathematically. Here, we review published mathematical models that attempt to describe fungal growth and branching in the vegetative (mycelial) phase.
