Comments P.4 right column bottom paragraph: "3. Highly expressed genes and maximum specific growth rate: There are clear differences in specific growth rates (adjusted to 20 °C, assuming a Q10 of 2) between the fastest-growing chemoorganotrophic microbes and those of autotrophic microbes of a similar cell size (tables 2 and 3). Table 2 [BNID 112630] shows data for osmochemoorganotrophic Bacteria, chemolithotrophic Archaea and Bacteria, anoxygenic photolithotrophic bacteria and the oxygenic photolithotrophic cyanobacteria. Table 3 shows data for Eukarya, including osmochemoorganotrophic and phagochemoorganotrophic, photolithotrophic and also mixotrophic (combining phototrophy with osmotrophy and phagotrophy)."
