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

<b>Plasmid transfer into donor and recipient populations.</b> 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 Hg<sup>R</sup> within each donor and recipient population (coloured with purple and yellow, respectively).
