Phenotypic heterogeneity within the Chlamydomonas reinhardtii populations. ac Distribution of single-cell starch, protein and TAG contents in the population at each of the 16 time points. X axis is the predicted starch, protein or TAG content in a cell (mg/g DW) and Y axis is the frequency (%) of such cells. DW dry weight. df Heterogeneity index (HI, i.e., relative standard deviation, RSD) of starch, protein or TAG contents in the populations at each of the 16 time points. Error bars represent the standard deviation from three biological replicates of culture at each time point
