The bacterium E. coli is normally killed by low concentrations of the antibiotic streptomycin. In a standard E. coli population, about 1 in 106 cells (0.0001%) are mutants that are resistant to streptomycin; that is, they can grow and divide in the presence of the antibiotic. Suppose that a rapidly growing population of E. coli is exposed to low levels of streptomycin. What percentage of the cells will be resistant to streptomycin after 20 generations in the presence of the antibiotic?
A) None of the cells
B) About 0.0001%
C) About 20%
D) About 100%
