GMS 6038 Bacterial Genetics and Physiology Preparatory Questions You should be able to answer these questions by the end of the first week of class, based on your previous education and/or looking over the PDF/PowerPoint linked to the course web page: http://www.mgm.ufl.edu/~gulig/bacgen/handouts/basic-bacteriology.pdf. There will be an opportunity for clarification in class and out of class.

List the unique chemical components of each cell wall type. 2. How do gram-negative bacteria manage to grow quickly in spite of their unique cell wall/membrane structure? 3.
