  1. Samples were collected during early exponential phase (t1) and lipid production phase (t3). Total lipids were not determined at t1, but instead the values reported here are the mean total lipid contents between the first two total lipid measurements (Fig. 1), assuming a linear increase over time. Absolute levels of lipid classes were determined from the mean percentages of lipid classes and mean value of total lipid content
