Modelling of E.coli fermentations: comparison of multicompartment and variable structure models
Two novel approaches for modelling processes that can be described by a sequence of phases (metabolic states) are suggested and applied to Escherichia Coli fermentations. The first approach uses a multi-compartment model framework, coupled with knowledge-based logic. In the second approach the multi-compartment model is reduced into the Variable Structure Model consisting of a battery of alternative submodels, each of which qualitatively represents one of the process steps. Furthermore, simulated intracellular process variables are compared with the output of a multi-wavelength fluorosensor and excitation-emission pairs that predict best these variables are identified.
