Today I saw some models of protein-protein interaction networks. They were simple graphs, with nodes and edges, but the 3d models reminded me of mycellium

Just below video:

Hyphae grow into the lighter areas of the image while avoiding their own trails. Branching and growth speed are also functions of the avalible food (brightness) in the image.
