  • For free-living single-celled organisms, it can be assumed that it is their success in acquiring resources and converting them into cytoplasm that controls the timing of their cell cycles. Cytoplasm is the sink for the bulk of the environmental resources. It must be the case that this type of control must operate in dilute cultures under adequate nutrition in a constant environment. It follows that there ought to be mechanisms that measure or count the cell's biomass or some component of the… CONTINUE READING
