    Phoytoplasmas are associated with abnormal development. In Napier Grass phytoplasma infection causes dwarfing characterized by foliar yellowing, little leaves, proliferation of tillers and shortening of internodes.  Infection of the Madagascan periwinkle causes phyllody, a process where petals become like leaves.

    The process of cell division is divided into tow functions known as an integrated machine the mother cell supports the development of the daughter cell by supping substrate machine functions (i.e. nutrient precursors ans ATP) and coding functions (genome replication, transcription and translation).
Replication occurs bidirectionally (illustrated above); two replication forks run away from each other around the bacterial genome. A Oric
