The experimental results is depicted by the red curve, while our model is shown by the green curve. The resource curve was also plotted as a function of time and is shown below. From experimental results [[IGEM:IMPERIAL/2008/New/Appendices]], a log graph was plotted to determine the growth rate. The growth rate was then determined from the gradient of the log graph. This value was included when simulating the growth model using MATLAB. |

The following constants used to generate the model were found to yield the best fit to experimental results. | The following constants used to generate the model were found to yield the best fit to experimental results. | ||
