  ===  +  ===How to model the growth curve?=== 
+  In order to model the growth of ''B. subtilis'', the process was broken down into three main steps, where a separate submodel is produced in MATLAB for each step. Each submodel is an ODE model, which can be simulated using MATLAB. The variables in each submodel can be adjusted according to the boundary conditions (from experimental results).  
+  
+  In the final step, a combination of Submodels 1 and 2 are superposed with Submodel 3, resulting in a more complex model which enhances the accuracy of illustrating bacterial growth. For more details about the submodels, please click on the following links:

The following constants used to generate the model were found to yield the best fit to experimental results. GROWTH CONSTANT: A = 1.3494 INITIAL NUTRIENT CONCENTRATION: R_0 = 2 HILL COEFFICIENT: n = 1.25 INITIAL OD = 0.4 CONSTANT: α = 0.64516
