Figure 2.

Cell length and cell number measurements allow growth curve segmentation into lag1 and lag2 phases. (A) Mean bacterial length in minimal arabinose medium (M9ARA). 1 μm = 3 pixels. The blue line is a guide to the eye. (B) Mean cell numbers (in 20 μl sample) in M9ARA medium. The red line is a fit to the optimal control model. (C) Mean bacterial length in minimal glucose + amino-acid medium (M9CGLU). 1 μm = 3 pixels. The blue line is a guide to the eye. (D) Mean cell number (in 20 μl sample) in M9CGLU medium. The red line is a fit to the model. Error bars indicate standard error.
