How bacteria control their cell cycle

Researchers at the Biozentrum of the University have demonstrated how bacteria coordinate cell division with the replication of their genetic material. In an interdisciplinary study they explain why the current concept of the bacterial cell cycle has to be rewritten. The results were published in eLife.advertisement Each living cell grows and divides, thus generating new offspring. […]
