Figure 1.

Time course of biofilm growth comparing SAL, mFUM4, and iHS as growth media. Total counts determined by plating on CBA agar plates (T. denticola and T. forsythia are not cultivable on CBA). Each box represents N = 9 independent biofilms from three independent triplicate experiments. The boxes represent the inter quartile range of the data points, the bar indicates the median. The whiskers cover the data points within the 1.5x inter quartile range. Dots are outliers within 1.5 and 3 box lengths outside the interquartile range.
