BACKGROUND Growth rate management in fast-growing bacteria is currently an active research area. In spite of the huge progress made in our understanding of the molecular mechanisms controlling the growth rate, fundamental questions concerning its intrinsic limitations are still relevant today. In parallel, systems biology claims that mathematical models could shed light on these questions. METHODS This review explores some possible reasons for the limitation of the growth rate in fast-growing… CONTINUE READING
