I Logarithmic Growth-only par of bacterial growth curve is exponential
-Chromosomes are copied by DNA polymerase, bacterium becomes elongated a Fts2 pinches the bacteria apart, cell wall components are created and finish the division processs
II a) Replication of chromosome:
-DNA polymerase-enzyme that synthesis new DNA molecules complimentary to template strands
-DNA is double stranded, interacting via complementary bases (AT)(CG) 3 H bonds that hold them together
—two H bonds that hold them together
-DNA gets unzipped DNA polymerase repliicates it, (no ends, just a circle) Both DNA has one strand of the old DNA, chromosome gets attached to the inside of the cell wall (plasma membrane)
