Representative data set including: turbidity (UV-vis spectrophotometry) traces, fluorescene measurements, and data for statistical analyses, all in csv files, confocal and cryo-EM micrographs (pngs), and epifluorescence time and temperature-resolved movies (mp4). Epifluorescence microscopy movies are compressed for reasons of space, and the raw data are available through the authors.
