Figure S5: Coupling of cell elongation rate and interval between division across multiple experiments. The pattern observed in Figure 3 is repeatable and consistent across independent experiments. Non-parametric correlation analysis for the differences between sisters in these two traits was performed for seven independent microcolonies (YgjD depletion in TB80), and the median and the range of the correlation coefficients is reported; the median correlation coefficients are negative from generation 3 on, indicating a coupling between cell elongation rate and the interval between two divisions.
