All viable bacterial cells, whether they divide symmetrically or asymmetrically, must coordinate their growth, division, cell volume and shape with the inheritance of the genome. These coordinated processes maintain genome integrity over generations as chromosomes are duplicated and segregated during each cell cycle, and include the organization of DNA into nucleoids, controlled and faithful DNA replication, chromosome unlinking and faithful segregation into daughter cells.
