Homework Help: biology

Posted by anon on Monday, March 29, 2010 at 2:18am.

Replication of the E. coli chromosome takes 40 to 45 minutes, but the organism has a generation time of 26 minutes. How does the cell have time to make complete chromosomes for each daughter cell? For each granddaughter cell?


my reponse was that the cells don't fully replicate the choromosome before they divide so the orginal cell can produce a grandaughter cell while the daugter cell's chromosome is still replicating. Is this correct?
