budding bacteria

Group of bacteria that reproduce by budding.

Each bacterium divides following unequal cell growth; the mother cell is retained, and a new daughter cell forms. In budding, the cell wall grows from one point on the cell rather than throughout the cell; this type of growth permits the development of more complex structures and processes. Most budding bacteria are aquatic and can attach to surfaces by their stalks; some are free-floating.
