Method | Electron microscopy |

Comments | The size distributions at the instant of birth [O(x)] and cellular separation [f(x)] were estimated from deeply constricted cells, i.e., from cells just before division. Let n ?(x) denote predicted frequency of cells of size x and y(x) denote observed frequency. |
