Method Indirect calculation based on the ratio: (dry mass)/OD460. Footnotes 'j','k' beneath table: "‘j’-The average cell mass in OD460 units is the reciprocal of the cell number per OD460, i.e., Mc=1/Cm." "‘k’-The cell mass in micrograms dry weight was calculated, using the value of 173 µg per OD460 unit of culture mass (primary source)."
Comments Calculated based on data at 24 minutes cell doubling time. See table for other doubling times
