Abstract

Nordholt et al. show how growth-rate and protein-concentration homeostasis is achieved in Bacillus subtilis, through systematic rate adjustments during cell-cycle progression. They identify two distinct growth regimes in this bacterium's cell cycle, suggesting a link between growth-rate dynamics and size homeostasis.
