Growth characteristics and metabolite profiles of WT and M150B. Batch cultures of WT (blue hollow shapes) and M150B (orange filled shapes) were grown in CGM with either 100 g/L crude glycerol (a) or 60 g/L pure glycerol (b). Turbidity was monitored (OD600, circles) as well as glycerol (squares, secondary axis), butanol (triangles), butyrate (lower plot, diamonds), and 1,3 propanediol (lower plot, squares). Error bars represent standard deviation, two biological replicates
