A: one day, B: 4 months and C: one year. The x axis represents the number of chromosomes in the cell line and the y axis represents the percentage of cells in population. Conclusions

Cell proliferation and apoptosis are coordinately linked processes. Genetic engineering of cellular and metabolic pathways can enhance cell robustness, adaptation and productivity. Genetic and chromosomal instability may affect production stability.
