I am wondering if anyone knows a simple way to detect the presence of  
gametes in a population of chlamydomonas reinhardtii _without_ running  
a mating reaction.  are there any cytometric methods known for this?

also, i am wondering if anyone has any experience studying populations  
of gametes that are not permitted to mate.  in the literature it is  
clear that gametes can survive nutrient deficiency for long periods.   
has anyone studied this process systematically?

thank you very much,
