I am a molecular biologist at UCSF. Over the years, I have accumulated a collection of strange and beautiful fungal contaminants (mostly filamentous and slime molds) that have grown up on my petri dishes. I have lovingly nursed and organized this group of stray microbes, and consider them like my children. Unfortunately, I'm moving to a distant land for a spell and my fungus collection is in danger of being dumped by my uncaring colleauges . To prevent this tragedy, I am looking for a fellow mycophile to take over the care of my little pets. They're very low maintenance... they must simply be kept in a dark drawer or closet and occasionally checked to prevent leakage or dessication. Please, be a kind soul and take in my molds!
