BacSim – Simulator of Bacterial Growth

BacSim

:: DESCRIPTION

BacSim is a simulator for individual-based modelling of bacterial colony growth. The potential of this approach is in relating the properties of microscopic entities – cells – to the properties of macroscopic, complex systems such as biofilms. Here, the growth of a single Escherichia coli cell into a colony was studied.
