I’m new to the world of mycelium and biofacriction and was wondering if you could help me out. I am applying for a fellowship right now that would give me time and money to pursue questions related to the incorporation of living organisms into design, technology and our built environment. Biofab is of course very relavant. It seems like in most case once a shape or material is grown the organism is killed before the material gets used. Are any of you aware of instances in which the organism is kept alive for some purpose during its use? Maybe for regeneration or as a pesticide of some sort. Let me know if anything comes to mind!
