Figure 3

Quantitative dependence of diversity. (A) Compositional and phenotypic diversity plotted as a function of D. For compositional and phenotypic diversity, the numbers of chemical species included in each cell (left ordinate), and in more than 10 cells out of M tot cells (right ordinate) are shown. (B) (a) Average similarity of mother and daughter cells and (b) average similarity between cells in 104 successive division events in 30 different networks, plotted against D. For (b), the average over cells with positive similarity(red) is shown in addition to the average for all cells (green). (C) Dependence of compositional (left ordinate) and phenotypic (right ordinate) diversity on the number of cells, M tot, with fixed D=0.01. (D) Average division speed as a function of D. For reference, a linear line with D is plotted. For D>0.2, an estimate of the division speed (0.0005) is also shown with a dotted line (see main text). Unless otherwise indicated, the data are obtained as the average over 105 division events in 30 different networks. The parameters are K M =K R =200, N=1000, and μ=0.001
