Phase ratio of various iron containing nanoparticles synthesized by MSR-1 at each time interval after the inducing of magnetosome formation. The results are based on HRTEM analyses and showed that at the early stage of magnetosome formation, multiple iron oxide nanoparticles can co-exist in the cells besides magnetite, including hematite, ε-Fe2O3 and other iron containing phases. Some representative HRTEM images and their FFT analyses are listed in SI
