Lineage space and the propensity of bacterial cells to undergo growth transitions
Clusters are exponentially distributed below the critical region (red line, simulation; gray dashed line, exponential fit ae–bc for cluster sizes c) but diverge from an exponential distribution near the critical region, eventually becoming bimodal (purple, blue, green, and orange lines). Each parameter set was simulated 10,000 times. a. Raw probability distributions. b. Probability distributions normalized to the probability of cluster size 1.
