Comparison of global half-lives and cell doubling time of selected organisms. For all organisms the global median half-life is presented except for Plasmodium falciperum, for which only mean half-lives were available. Values were obtained from the following sources: Halobacterium salinarum , Sulfolobus solfactaricus and Sulfolobs acidocaldarius , E. coli , P. falciperum [54,55], Saccharomyces cerevisiae [56,57], Arabidopsis thaliana [9,58], Bacillus subtilis [6,59], and Prochlorococcus marinus (this study).
