Comments P.3/21 top paragraph:"The experimental link between RNAP and ribosomal gene location, and bacterial growth rate is missing. Vibrio cholerae, the etiological agent of cholera is a unique model to test this link. It is among the fastest-growing bacteria, displaying one of the highest number of simultaneous replication rounds [ref 16]. In addition, it is a model for the study of bacteria with multiple chromosomes. Its genome consists of a main chromosome (Chr1) of 2.96 Mbp which harbors the majority of essential genes and a second chromosome (Chr2) of 1.07 Mbp that encodes a higher proportion of hypothetical genes [primary source 28]."
