Comments Note ‘l’ beneath table: "The average numbers of replication origins, termini, and replication forks were determined from the values of C and D (Table 3), using equations 7, 8, and 10, respectively, of table 5 below." C=the time required to replicate the chromosome: D=the time period between termination of a round of replication and the following cell division.
