ResultsThe model for the growth curve was fitted to the experimental results as shown below. 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. Based on our experimental results from the Wet Lab, 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.
