Biofilm formation and growth rates of M. smegmatis mc2 155 and M. smegmatis groEL1ΔC are comparable. (A) Both M. smegmatis mc2 155 (WT) and M. smegmatis groEL1ΔC strains are able to form biofilms after an incubation time of 7 days at 30°C. (B) Growth curve of M. smegmatis mc2155 (WT = black) and M. smegmatis groEL1ΔC strains (grey) in 7H9 expression medium. The arrow represents the typical time of induction in M. smegmatis.
