Simulation with chemostat_mutant.fig

Xp: Concentration of producing biomass; Xm: Concentration of mutant; S: Limiting substrate concentration;
logNm: 10-log of numbers of mutant cells.


 This simulation illustrates the take-over by a single plasmid free cell in a chemostat that is started with a plasmid harbouring population producing a recombinant protein. The plasmid containing cells have a biomass yield coefficient of 0.4 g/g while the mutant has the yield coefficient 0.5 g/g.

For information about model equations and parameters: Open the SIMSPEC-file chemostat_mutant.fig, available in the SimuPlot toolbox.

Student exercise.
