    • the number of plasmid copies is an average among a given population of cells.
  • Inputs:
    • none
  • Outputs:
    • nbPlasmidCopies
  • Characteristic parameters:
    • Unit: copy

  • This component is used to customize a given circuit to a particular plasmid construct in terms of copy number
  • This component defines the average number of gene copies per cell due to the number of plasmid copies.
