Yes, each time a pairing takes place, the genetic material travels up and down the mycelium via the clamp connections between the individual cells. A pairing at one end of a substrate will have an effect at the opposite end. It's sort of like setting up dominoes and knocking them over in a chain reaction. Remember, mycelium is only one cell in thickness. Rhizomorphic mycelium is visible to the naked eye because it's composed of thousands of mycelial strands woven together into a 'rope'.

By the way, I'm about a third of the way through that Cordyceps paper and wanted to jump over and say...

Damn good link, man! :cool: Many thanks! :bow:

John Holliday has a very nice style/rhythm; refreshing for a straight journal style writeup. I'll have to keep his name in mind.

Not to be presumptions, Mr. Rabbit, but have you ever considered submitting some things to the Wikipedia? It currently knows nada about clamp connections.

Tom Volk is sooo cool...
Saw him at a meeting of my local mycology society. Very informative. A true professional.
