  1. The isoprene values of Chaves et al. [7] and of Bentley and Melis [5] were recalculated to the dry weight basis using the reported relation of OD750 to dry cell weight (DCW). The calculation of the dry cell weight in our study based on the determined relation OD750 to dry cell weight (DCW) shown in the Additional file 10
