    algorithm for bacteria fissiparity

    Level 7
      If I wanted to make a FLASH animation showing bacteria fissiparity i.e.
      reproduction by division.

      I.e. a clip representing a bacterium (shown, say, a s ball) which grows and
      when achieving a certain size divides into two small ones and each in turn
      grows and devides into two etc - what algorithm can be suggested?
      The snag is that each bacterium needs to be independent in the sense that it
      moves randomly and independently of all other bacteria. Also it needs to die
      (disappear) independently.
