During World War I, Fleming had a commission in the Royal Army Medical Corps and worked as a bacteriologist studying wound infections in a laboratory that Wright had set up in a military hospital housed in a casino in Boulogne, France. There he demonstrated that the use of strong antiseptics on wounds did more harm than good and recommended that the wounds simply be kept clean with a mild saline solution. Returning to St. Mary’s after the war, Fleming was promoted to assistant director of the Inoculation Department.

The growing tip eventually gives rise to a branch. This is the beginning of the branched mycelium. Growing tips that come in contact with neighbouring hyphae often fuse with them to form a hyphal net. In such a vigorously growing system, the cytoplasm is in constant motion, streaming toward the growing tips. Eventually, the older hyphae become highly vacuolated and may be stripped of most of their cytoplasm. All living portions of a thallus are potentially capable of growth. If a small piece of mycelium is placed under conditions favourable for growth, it develops into a new thallus, even if no growing tips are included in the severed portion.

These bubblelike structures are usually too small to be seen with an ordinary microscope but are clearly evident under the electron microscope. In higher fungi the apical vesicles can be detected with an ordinary microscope equipped with phase-contrast Rhizopus stolonifer, a species optics as a round spot with a of bread mold, produces sporangia somewhat diffuse boundary. that bear sporangiospores (asexual This body is universally known spores).
