Measurement of size and gene expression of evolved E. coli cells along the growth curve using MACS
MACS (Microfluidics-assisted cell screening) is a recently developed microfluidic platform that allows to take mesurements of some properties of E. coli cells. In this work we want to measure some properties of E. coli cells along the growth curve using MACS. These cells have been evolved with minimal medium with different concentrations of carbon and nitrogen sources and samples have been taken at different stages of the evolution process. I will measure the expression levels and the sizes of all these samples with MACS and compare the distributions of the different variables both between different stages of the evolution process, and between different growth conditions.
