Herbert (1961) said that at least three, and preferably five, generations of exponential growth were needed to obtain steady-state conditions, and that while this could be achieved with care in batch culture, the steady state could be maintained in chemostat culture for as long as required. Comparisons were made between the chemical composition of cells from chemostat cultures at different growth rates, and cultures that were carbon-limited for growth were compared with cultures that were nitrogen-limited or phosphate-limited.

Bacterial Metabolism and the U nity of Biochemistry In his account of Kluyver's contribution to microbiology and biochemistry, van Niel (1957) remarked that when Kluyver had been appointed to the laboratory at Delft in 1922, the knowledge of the chemical activities of microorganisms had been virtually restricted to the awareness that a large number of chemical transformations could occur while biochemistry as such was mainly devoted to the analysis of blood and urine. While Kluyver was actively engaged in investigating microbial transformations in more detail, another important development was taking place in England.

The concept of the species did not become much stronger in the next 20 years. On the other hand, relatedness in terms of comparisons of details of molecular structure could be examined in much greater detail. It became possible to make comparisons between sequences of homologous proteins and between sequences of nucleic acids. , 1977) added to the complexity of the bacterial genome.
