Modeling of the Auxotroph System

**A summary of our modeling work is shown on this page and a detailed analysis can be downloaded HERE

Our goal is to get a steady ratio of the two strains’ populations, which is neither too large nor too small. First, we did mathematical analysis based on the ODEs above; then we performed a simulation of this system. What’s more, we also searched suitable parameters which could make the system go to a steady ratio of the two strains to test the robustness of this system. Finally, we did a sensitivity analysis which could tell us which parameter is sensitive if we want to get a steady ratio.
