Under favorable conditions, an E. coli cell divides into two identical cells approximately every 30 min. Immediately after division, the cell has a typical volume of 1 ┬Ám3 and consists of 30% protein by weight.Assuming that there are 10,000 ribosomes in the cell, estimate the average rate of translation (in codons/s) for each ribosome.
b)Assume that transcription occurs at the same rate as translation (a rather bad assumption for eukaryotic cells, but not unreasonable for a bacterium). Further assuming that the cell contains 2500 RNA polymerases, estimate the average number of proteins produced from each mRNA.
