In stable environments, cell size fluctuations are thought to be governed by simple physical principles, as suggested by recent finding of scaling properties. Here we show, using E. coli, that the scaling concept also rules cell size fluctuations under time-dependent conditions, even though the distribution changes with time. We develop a microfluidic device for observing dense and large bacterial populations, under uniform and switchable conditions. Triggering bacterial reductive division by… Expand
