Unformatted text preview: cells in bioreactors? 12. Do prokaryotic cells and eukaryotic cells have a cell wall? What are the major component of the cell wall for prokaryotic cells and eukaryotic cells? 13. Name the major protein synthesis machinery shared by prokaryotic cells and eukaryotic cells. 14. In the lab, bacterial cells can be streaked on agar plates. Single colonies usually appear after incubation at 37 C for overnight. Assume the nutrient is always available for all the cells in each single colony so that the cell population increases exponentially. Estimate the cell population in a single colony based on the following information: 30 min for cells doubling time, 12 h of incubation time. 15. Name the virus that will infect bacteria. 16. What is the genetic material within virus particles? 17. What is retrovirus? Examples? 18. What are the possible pathways when bacteria get infected by bacteriophage ?...
