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.
