"This project is about investigation the interactions between Synthetic auxin (Napthalene-1-acetic acid), Desert Microbiome and Slime molds (Physarum plasmodium) by observing the chemotaxis of the slime mold. Based on our research Slime mold even though they lack complex nervous system is still able to respond to stimuli very effectively. This caught our interest and that is the reason why we decided to pursue this research. "
