Modelización basada en el individuo (IBM) perspectiva multidisclipinar en microbiologia aplicada: alimentos, medioambiente y salud
Abstract
This contribution develops and implements INDISIM-Saccha, a spatially explicit IBM model to analyze the dynamics of Saccharomyces cerevisiae anaerobic cultures evolving in a liquid medium with glucose as a main carbon source and organic and inorganic nitrogen sources. The model has been parameterized, calibrated and its adequacy assessed using available experimental data. The growth of the yeast population and the glucose depletion were simulated, and changes in the ethanol production kinetics r...
