  3. Course content Difference between prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Growth curve- mono growth. auxic and Diauxic Synchronous growth

  4. - Continuous growth- chemostat - Mathematical expression of growth Calculation of generation time and number of generations. - Related problems

  5. Microbial growth It is an orderly increase in all the cellular constituents resulting in increase in mass. Growth is followed by cell division leading to increase in cell number. Bacteria divide by binary fission

  6. Binary fission is a method of asexual reproduction in which the cell divides into two identical daughter cells of equal size, carrying equally partitioned genetic material.

  7. Whenever a bacteria gets proper nutrition, it enters the growth phase i.e. starts to divide and increases its population When the nutrition starts exhausting the population of bacteria ceases, and due to accumulation of end products bacteria starts to die. - Whole of this process can be depicted by a curve known as growth curve.
