SCI 250 Week 1 Cell Division Template

Examine cell division in bacteria to determine how it
relates to growth.

Complete Appendix A to explain the following in your own
words:


  • The phases
    of growth in a bacterial culture

  • Methods used
    to measure bacterial growth

  • Physical and
    nutritional factors affecting bacterial growth

  • The
    processes of sporulation

  • The function
    of bacterial endospores

  •  

  • Appendix A –
    Cell Division in Bacteria

  •  

  • After
    reading Ch. 6 in Microbiology:
    Principles and Explorations
    , fill in the following matrix.

  •  






List the four phases of bacterial growth and briefly
describe what happens in each phase.





 




List and describe at least four methods used to measure
bacterial growth.





 




List at least two physical factors that influence bacterial
cell growth. Briefly describe how bacterial growth responds to changes in
those factors.





 




List at least two nutritional factors that influence
bacterial cell growth. Briefly describe how bacterial growth responds to
changes in those factors.





 




List and describe at least two events that occur during
the process of endospore formation (sporulation).

Note:
Visit Chapter 6 of Microbiology: Principles and Explorations in
WileyPlus to view the Endospore Formation Animation found
under the Animated Concepts Section.




 
 
 
 
 




What is the function of a bacterial endospore? Explain
in your own words.
