Mathematical Modelling of the Growth of Bacillus cereus Strain wwcp1on Malachite Green Dye
Keywords:Bacillus cereus, Malachite green dye, Mathematical modelling, Growth, von Bertalanffy
In this paper, various growth models such as Von Bertalanffy, Huang, Baranyi-Roberts, Modified Gompertz, Buchnam-3-phase, Modified-Richards and Modified-Logistics, were presented in fitting and evaluating the growth of Bacillus cereus wwcp1 on Malachite green dye. The Von Bertalanffy model was found to be the best model with the lowest RMSE and highest R2 values. The Accuracy and Bias factor values were near unity (1.0). The von Bertalanffy parameters such as A (lower asymptote bacterial growth), Î¼ (bacterial growth rate) and k (curve fitting parameter) were found to be 2.757 (95% confidence interval from 2.131 to 3.382 ), 0.287 (95% confidence interval from 0.244 to 0.329) and 4.323 (95% confidence interval from 4.285 to 4.361) respectively.
