Sos response E. coli

... in it. I did an experiment where we irradiated sodium azide sensitive E. coli with UV rays and it took only 30 min of incubation time after the irradiation for the E coli to show sodium azide resistance. Id like to know how E coli was able to show this new resistance after only 30 min of incubation. ...
