A model system based on arrays of three concentric rings of discrete agar droplets is described which allowed study of fungal growth in vitro in nutritionally-heterogeneous conditions. Droplets containing different combinations of glucose and calcium phosphate were used to study the consequences of spatially separating these components in relation to metal phosphate solubilization by Rhizoctonia solani. A pH indicator, bromocresol purple, was added to the agar to visualise the localised… CONTINUE READING
