Length growth of synchronized Escherichia coli B/r substrain A (ATCC 12407) and B/r substrain F26 (thy his) was followed with an electron microscope. Cells were grown with doubling times (T) of 60 min (B/r A) and of 82 and 165 min (B/ r F26). Different length growth patterns were found for the two substrains. In B/ MATERIALS AND METHODS Culture and medium. E. coli B/r A (ATCC 12407) and B/r F26 (thy his) were obtained from C. E. Helmstetter. Cells were grown in the minimum salts medium of
