Figure S5 from Plasmid stability is enhanced by higher-frequency pulses of positive selection

Plasmid transfer into donor and recipient populations. The densities of plasmid-bearing and plasmid-free cells was plotted for each replicate population across the six selection treatments (solid lines indicate donors, and dotted lines indicate recipients). The shaded region represents presence of HgR within each donor and recipient population (coloured with purple and yellow, respectively).
