From: High adsorption rate is detrimental to bacteriophage fitness in a biofilm-like environment

Figure 4

Effect of adsorption rate on phage emigration rate. The proportions of phage populations embedded inside the top agar gel that diffused out of the top agar gel (the emigration rate) were plotted against adsorption rates under different top agar gel concentrations. Symbols: triangles, 0.27% top agar gel concentration; circles, 0.53%; squares, 0.8%. Error bars represent 95% confidence intervals.
