Minerva: An Open-Source Library for Bioprocesses


Minerva is a relational database with (i) bio-kinetic models; (ii) process and modeling information; (iii) and an expert system.

Key Features & Capabilities

  • Fast and flexible. Minerva have basic building blocks to design and simulate a bioprocess.

  • Understandable data. The data is collected in an open standard file format, called JSON. It uses human-readable text to store and transmit data.

  • Standarized construction of models. The evaluation of thousands of biorefinery designs is streamlined through smart and efficient management of biorefinery parameters to evaluate sets of design decisions and scenarios.

  • Accesible for all and to all. Several first principle models are inside this database. Some of the most importants are: the aerobic growth of Saccharomyces cerevisia or Escherichia coli or the anaerobic growth of Mannheimia succiniciproducens.
