Experimental design and correlation of growth profiles in different conditions. A: Competition in carbon-, nitrogen- or phosphorus-limited (F1) chemostats operating at 0.1 h-1 [4] were initially compared to competition in turbidostat cultures using complete synthetic medium (FPM, [6]; this work). Nitrogen-limited chemostat experiments at 0.2 h-1 and 0.3 h-1 (this work) and FPM fed chemostat at 0.3 h-1 (this work) were designed to investigate the differences between the competition in nutrient-limited chemostats operated at low growth rates to competition in the high growth-rate nutrient-sufficient conditions of the turbidostat. B: Correlation matrix based on the Spearman correlation coefficient of the relative growth rates of each hemizygote obtained from each experiment. The dendrograms are calculated using the Euclidean distance between rows (experiments) and hierarchical clustering.
