||"For all growth rates, nonspecific binding to
DNA (blue triangles, fig S3) is predicted to make up the largest fraction
of RNAPs, despite the fact that nonspecific binding is very weak.
Nonspecific binding accounts for 75% of all RNAPs at slow growth
(0.6 doubling per hour). This fraction decreases to 54% at 2.5
doublings per hour."
