Comparison of bacterial growth characteristic in liquid cultures. Bacterial growth curves were generated by measuring optical density every 60 min of CR (NADC 6564) and the CR+ (NADC 6565) isolates grown in YESCA broth (a) and the minimal medium DMEM (b) at 28 °C and 37 °C for 24 h. Three independent cultures of each strain were grown in sets of three technical replicates and each time point on the growth curve represents an average of nine replicates. The growth rate was computed by taking into account the time (h) it took for optical density of the bacterial cultures to double during the exponential phase of the growth
