  Growth of Bacterial Populations
The Laboratory of Bacterial Pathogenesis and Immunology, Rockefeller University.
The exponential phase of growth is a pattern of balanced growth wherein all the cells are dividing regularly by binary fission, and are growing by geometric progression.
Studying the growth of bacterial populations in batch or continuous cultures does not permit any conclusions about the growth behavior of individual cells, because the distribution of cell size (and hence cell age) among the members of the population is completely random.

 Bacteria - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The bacterial cell is bound by a lipid membrane, or plasma membrane, which encompasses the contents of the cell, or cytoplasm, and acts as a barrier that holds nutrients, proteins and other essential molecules within the cell.
Bacterial cell walls are composed of peptidoglycan (called Murein in older sources), are are thus different from the cell walls of plants and fungi which have cell walls of cellulose and chitin, respectively.
Bacterial metabolism can be divided broadly on the basis of the kind of energy used for growth, electron donors and electron acceptors and by the source of carbon used.

 Introduction :: Microbiology and Bacteriology :: The world of microbes
Bacterial cells carry out thousands of reactions leading to the generation of energy and the synthesis of cell components.
On an individual cell basis, growth can be defined as a summation of these processes or an orderly increase in cell constituents and structures with this ultimately leading to cell division as one cell becomes two.
Filamentous growth is common in the actinomycetes and fungi.Actinomycetes are spore-forming microbes that have a life-style and appearance that is similar to that of the fungi, yet they are bacteria.

It has the drawback that it is time consuming and the growth of germinated spores can alter the medium, possibly making it unsuitable for its intended purpose.
In fact, microorganisms are well preserved in liquid nitrogen (-196C) and this is a common method of preserving bacterial strains in research laboratories.

 Bacterial growth
The number of mutants is estimated by taking a sample of the culture, growing it on a selective environment, that only supports the growth of the mutants, and counting the number of colonies.
One issue which is not addressed in their study, is the assumption that the cells were in exponential growth over the whole period of the experiment.
The distribution of mutants in the final culture can be obtain from the convolution of the distribution at the end of exponential expansion and the hypergeometric distribution, corresponding to the sampling realized by the death process.

Chronic bacterial prostatitis may be difficult to eradicate because of the persistence of bacteria within the prostatic acini.

Based on the author's more than 40 years experience, Bacterial Growth and Form examines such important questions as what bacteria were, what they are, and what they do.
The book illustrates this point by closely examining the basic mechanismof hydrostatic or turgor pressure: how it functions for many of the mechanical purposes in the prokaryote, how it leads to mechanisms for resisting turgor pressure, and how it ultimately led to the development of exoskeletons and endoskeletons, and to the refinement of bacteria.
