After submitting the model from yesterday, we got the results from the supercomputer. We compared the gfp that was produced by the model to the experimental results that were found by other members of our group. Here are the graphs:

From these graphs, it is possible to see that the model is not really very correct. There is no GFP production at an aTC concentration of 0, when the experiments show a lot of production. This phenomenon is called leakiness and it is something that will need to be dealt with in future models.
Also, the model seems to peak at 3 hours or so, and then slowly decreases. This is not what we want to see. Instead the model should peak at 6 hours and then level off to a steady state.
The next model will hopefully improve on this effort and fix some of the problems.
