Population Dynamics


Due to our project being based around taking a section of our bacterial population, and making them sporulate, but not germinate again. Thus we need to make sure that we do not kill off our entire population. We need to be able to tune our system, so that we can have a large enough percentage of metal sequestering spores to make a positive environmental impact, but also a small enough percentage, so that the population will continue to live and grow.

Novelty in this sub-project

The novel part of this sub-project is to model the dynamics of a bacterial population, on the cellular level, as well as integrating this agent based model with biochemical models.


See Team:Newcastle/Modeling/Population

This section of the project is a model, which describes a high level working of our complete system. It also includes detail from other models, as it uses these in its descision making processes. The model is being developed in the Java programming language.
