Dataset from: Changes in cell size and shape during 50,000 generations of experimental evolution with Escherichia coli

Nkrumah Grant, Ali Abdel Magid, Joshua Franklin, Yann Dufour & Richard Lenski
Bacteria adopt a wide variety of sizes and shapes, with many species exhibiting stereotypical morphologies. How morphology changes, and over what timescales, is less clear. Previous work examining cell morphology in an experiment with Escherichia coli showed that populations evolved larger cells and, in some cases, cells that were less rod-like. That experiment has now run for over two more decades. Meanwhile, genome sequence data are available for these populations, and new computational methods enable...
