Unlike in multicellular organisms, increases in cell size and reproduction by cell division are firmly connected in unicellular organisms. Bacteria develop to a fixed size and afterward replicate through binary fission, a type of asexual reproduction. Under ideal conditions, bacteria can develop and isolate amazingly quickly, and bacterial populations can double as fast as each 9.8 minutes. During cell division, two identical clone daughter cells are produced. A few bacteria, while as yet reproducing asexually, structure more intricate reproductive structures that assist with disperse the newly formed daughter cells.
