Growth rate data fitting of Yarrowia lipolytica NCIM 3589 using logistic equation and artificial neural networks


Growth rate of Yarrowia lipolytica NCIM 3589 was observed in a fermentation medium consisting of peptone, yeast extract, sodium chloride. Logistic equation was fitted to the growth data (time vs. biomass concentration) and compared with the prediction given by Artificial Neural Networks (ANN). ANN was found to be superior in describing growth characteristics. A single MATLAB programme is developed to fit the growth data by logistic equation and ANN.
