Method Klebsiella pneumoniae was grown under conditions of potassium limitation at D=0.3 h^-1, 35°C and at pH 6.0 using glucose as carbon and energy source.
Comments Under steady state conditions the dilution rate in a chemostat equals to the specific growth rate µ. Generation time G arrived at from G=ln2/µ
