Modeling Microbial Growth

Is bacterial growth always exponential? Do bacteria with the fastest rate of growth always have the largest populations? Biota models offer extended opportunities to observe population growth over time. What are the factors that affect growth? Explore continuous, chaotic, and cyclic growth models.

  • examine the dynamics of growth for populations of virtual bacteria with differing growth rates and carrying capacities
