  1. The data show the mean value of 4 samples. As determined by Student’s t-test, significant differences are indicated by asterisks (* p < 0.05, ** p < 0.01, *** p < 0.001). Specific growth rate was calculated as (μ/day) = 1n (X2X1)/(t2t1), X1 and X2 are the initial and final biomass and t1 and t2 are the initial and final culture times
