A histogram of colony area growth time, i.e. the time taken to increase the colony area from 20 to 80 pixels for bacteria taken from indicated activated cultures of MG1655 E. Coli K-12 bacteria transformed with pZS*11GFP (MG1655/pPerA-GFP), pPerABC-GFP (MG1655/pPerABC-GFP), pPerA-GFP (MG1655/pPerA-GFP), pPerB-GFP (MG1655/pPerB-GFP) and pPerAB-GFP plasmids (MG1655/pPerAB-GFP). Co-expression of PerA and PerB causes bimodality of colony growth in MG1655. This experiment was repeated in at least two independent biological replicates.
