Comments "In order to elucidate the question which was posed at the outset [As the macromolecular composition of microorganisms varies during their life cycle it was asked whether, and to what extent such changes exert any influence on substrate consumption, i.e. growth yield and carbon conversion efficiency, respectively?], five different cell compositions were chosen. Depending on their content of macromolecules and polymers the "cell formulae" summarized in Table 1 were obtained. These apparently do not vary significantly (cf. Babel and Muller 1985a)." C4H6.501.9N0.7 is reasonably accurate for yeasts
