“Background This study focuses on the analysis of reporters for the expression of metabolic genes as a first step towards the analysis of phenotypic variation in metabolism in clonal populations of Escherichia coli. Our aim was to explore whether different systems that transport glucose exhibit different level of heterogeneity. We were also interested in whether certain conditions promote heterogeneity further downstream, in metabolic reactions.
