Table 2 Typical duplication time of bacterial organisms according to their mode of respiration

From: Metabolic-network-driven analysis of bacterial ecological strategies

  Number of species* Mean duplication time Median duplication time Mean network size
Aerobic bacteria 40 13 3 412
Anaerobic bacteria 18 5.3 1.6 318
Facultative bacteria 41 1.7 0.8 380
  1. Oxygen-dependence annotations were taken from [34]. *Species in this analysis are those for which duplication times are available, the metabolic network was reconstructed (Materials and methods), and their oxygen-dependence group is one of the groups in the table (bacteria species whose oxygen-dependence annotation is 'unknown' or 'microaerophylic' are not shown here).
