Data from: Symmetry breaking and inter-clonal behavioural variability in slime molds

David Vogel, Audrey Dussutour & Jean-Louis Deneubourg
Cells are dynamic systems capable of switching from an isotropic growth to a polarized growth even in the absence of any pre-existing external asymmetry. Here, we study this process of symmetry breaking in the acellular slime mold Physarum polycephalum. In the experiments slime molds could grow on two identical opposed sources of calcium. We highlighted a positive correlation between growth dynamic, level of symmetry breaking and calcium concentration. We identified three populations of slime molds...
