Method 
The number of symbionts inhabiting the light organ of one of the mediumsized squids (averaging ~10^7) were used to calculate the average generation time of
symbionts within the light organs as described by the equations µ=(lnNlnNo)/(t  to) and g = ln2/µ (where µ is the
growth rate, N is the number of cells at time t, No is the number
of cells at time to, and g is the generation time [or doubling
time]). 
Comments 
Average of four experiments, where n=2,5,2,4 respectively.
