... rather than working out your GOE model and its precise implications, you bash the HGT hypothesis. To make it worse, your argument is a slippery slope. Suggesting frequent HGT for Elysia chlorotica doesn't lead to HGT being frequent for all of domain Eukaryota. In fact, this source says that ...

Which is the best calculation for growth?

... not count cells in-between. If I could, I would determine a growth rate by doing a linear regression of a log-plot of my cell-nr over time and the slope is then my growth rate. However, with two points only, a regression is senseless. It comes out like: growth-rate= ln (Nt/No)/t But since I don't ...

Re: molar extinction coefficient

Once you have plotted the data and drawn the line, the slope is the rise/run, the dy/dx. You can count squares on the graph paper. On the other hand, you can put the values of x and y into a spreadsheet and run a linear regression. If you do that, be ...
