Describe the key molecular processes that occur when a cell grows and divides.
Answer to relevant QuestionsExamine the graph describing the relationship between growth rate and temperature. Give an explanation, in biochemical terms, of why the optimum temperature for an organism is usually closer to its maximum than its minimum. Contrast the terms thermal death time and decimal reduction time. How would the presence of bacterial endospores affect either value? What is the difference between the specific growth rate (k) of an organism and its generation time (g)? What are the objectives of systems biology? Which genomes are larger, those of chloroplasts or those of mitochondria? Describe one unusual feature each for the chloroplast and mitochondrial genomes.
