My colleague Ernie Boyd and I have been working on something like this for the last
three years. We are trying to get the math right for a reaction-diffusion
mechanism for asymmetric growth. The symmetrical growth problem is much easier
to do. I recently published a review on this topic in: Patterns in Fungal
Development, S. Chiu and D.Moore, eds. Cambridge University Press. I haven't 
seen a copy of the book yet myself, but it should be out any day!
Will you be attending the MSA meetings next week? If so, look me up!
