Estimates of the conjugation coefficients γD and γT (bacterium-1h-1) by the model with a single estimate for both donor and transconjugant (γ = γD= γT), and by the model with separate conjugation coefficients for donor and transconjugant (γD≠ γT)
Parameter Value 95% confidence interval AICcc*
γ = γD= γT 36.8
γ 2.2 10-13 (6.6 10-14 – 7.6 10-13)
γD≠ γT 23.4
γD 2.4 10-14 4.4 10-10 (1.0 10-14 – 6.0 10-14)
γT (3.1 10-10 – 6.3 10-10)

*AICc = Akaike’s Information Criterion corrected for a finite sample size n.

AICc = AIC + 2 k (k + 1)/(n-k-1), in which k is the number of parameters in the model.
