Conidium Development Time-lapse Movie (DVD)
An invaluable time-lapse teaching movie. This tape is meant to be used as a teaching aid in conjunction with the textbook The Fifth Kingdom.
After a title sequence meant to be reminiscent of a phialide in action, followed by acknowledgments, the tape begins by showing how the specially designed thin culture chambers used in the filming of this movie are filled with medium, inoculated, sealed and incubated. A set of interesting sound effects – which tend to hold student attention – make their debut here, and pop up at intervals throughout the rest of the tape.
