Question: Calculate g and k in a growth experiment in which
Calculate g and k in a growth experiment in which a medium was inoculated with 5 x 106 cells/ ml of Escherichia coli cells and, following a 1-h lag, grew exponentially for 5 h, after which the population was 5.4 x 109 cells/ ml.
Answer to relevant QuestionsEscherichia coli but not Pyrolobus fumarii will grow at 40° C, while P. fumarii but not E. coli will grow at 110° C. What is happening (or not happening) to prevent growth of each organism at the nonpermissive temperature? What is the major difference in how duplications have contributed to the evolution of prokaryotic versus eukaryotic genomes? Which genomes are larger, those of chloroplasts or those of mitochondria? Describe one unusual feature each for the chloroplast and mitochondrial genomes. Explain how alternative sigma factors control sporulation in Bacillus. Adaptation allows the mechanism controlling flagellar rotation to be reset. How is this achieved?
