Comments P.865 left column bottom paragraph: "Geometrically, E. coli is a rod-shaped bacterium and may be modelled as a spherocylinder [ref 32]. This means that the volumes described above will have to be decomposed into the two characteristic dimensions of this geometric shape, the radius (R) and the height (h) (Figure 2). Some of the studies that indicate the cell volume also indicate the radius of the cell (commonly named as cell width) (Table 2), and hence the height can be calculated using the volume equation for spherocylinders. It should be noticed that the height in this case is not equivalent to the cell length, a parameter that is also typically indicated in these studies (Table 2)."
