New Cybernetics Data Have Been Reported by Investigators at National University (MODELING THE MICROBIAL GROWTH OF TWO Escherichia coli STRAINS IN A MULTI-SUBSTRATE ENVIRONMENT)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Research findings on Cybernetics are discussed in a new report. According to news reporting from Santa Fe, Argentina, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "The microbial growth in multi-substrate environments may be viewed as an optimal resources allocation problem. The optimization aims at maximizing some biological objective like the biomass growth."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from National University, "The models developed using this hypothesis are called 'cybernetic' and they represent the complex cell structure as an optimizing function that regulates the intracellular enzymatic machinery. In this work, a cybernetic model was developed to represent the growth of two E. coli strains (JM 109 and BL 21 -DE3-) on a medium containing glucose and glycerol as carbon and energy sources."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The model was able to accurately simulate the biomass growth, the substrates consumption and the growth-rate profiles."
