Alignment of growth curves and GFP expression in WT strain. A) Median growth curves constructed from 8 replicates of cultures inoculated between 0.0025 OD600 (dark blue) and 2 × 10-5 OD600 (dark red). B) Growth curve alignment for the median growth curves. C) Median GFP expression curves, constructed from the same samples as the growth curves. D) GFP curves aligned using the time-shift calculated from the OD600 alignment.
