Modelling robust microbial communities
Start date15 February 2013
End date14 July 2013
We undertake to extend existing and explore new modelling approaches for microbial populations in microbial ecology. The aim is to better understand robustness properties of such populations, such as in the soil or gut microbiomes or in bio-technological systems like microbial Fuel Cells (MFCs) with the objective to contribute to the design of robust microbial systems and increase their long-term yield and stability.
