	%X We used live E. coli containing synthetic genetic
oscillators to study how the degree of synchrony between the genetic
circuits of sister cells changes with temperature. We found that both
the mean and the variability of the degree of synchrony between the
fluorescence signals from sister cells are affected by temperature.
Also, while most pairs of sister cells were found to be highly
synchronous in each condition, the number of asynchronous pairs
increased with increasing temperature, which was found to be due to
disruptions in the oscillations. Finally we provide evidence that these
disruptions tend to affect multiple generations as opposed to
individual cells. These findings provide insight in how to design
more robust synthetic circuits and in how cell division can affect their
dynamics.
