Method 
In exponentially growing cultures,
the doubling time (T) was calculated for each experiment
from regressions fitted to the logarithm of the observed
values for increasing turbidity, mean cell volume (V) was
determined from observed cell volume distributions, and
mean cell mass (M) was determined as the product of the
mean cell volume and the observed mean buoyant density
(?). In synchronous cultures, doubling times were determined
from increases in both mean cell volume and cell number.
