Page 17 - However, none of the authors propose a mechanism for growth because it is always assumed that the metabolic processes are quite complex, involving a variety of rate laws, and that these, processes are among the rate determining steps for growth. Although, there is extensive knowledge about the mode of growth (the sequence of processes involved in cell growth), none of the authors use this information in developing a model. The fact that...
