Examples

  • This could maintain a chemostat-type bloom system, as to the north of St. Lawrence Island [29], allowing a longer growing season and greater production and thus transport.

    Past variability in Arctic marine systems

  • Because the Gulf of Anadyr "cold pool" is maintained by sea-ice production/brine formation in the St Lawrence Island polynya, an enhanced and more energetic polynya resulting from warming is likely to maintain a chemostat-type bloom system, allowing a longer growing season and higher levels of production.

    Future change in processes and impacts on Arctic biota

  • Evidence for the hypothesis derives from metabolic theory, direct studies of flux, studies of null and other types of alleles in Drosophila melanogaster and chemostat studies in Escherichia coli.

    Darwin and neutrality - The Panda's Thumb

  • According to the original abstract, an unknown predator had invaded a chemostat containing algae.

    Mutation, selection and complexity - The Panda's Thumb

  • Origins.com, that the growth rate of strains that are competing for nutrient in a chemostat can be skewed depending on which form is dominating.

    Mutation, selection and complexity - The Panda's Thumb

  • For either of our models to be internally consistent, low but non-zero levels of empty cell walls proportional to the unicell density need to be present during the steady-state unicell-colony-predator chemostat.

    Mutation, selection and complexity - The Panda's Thumb

  • In order to avoid “washing out” the growth rate must be at least equal to the dilution rate as determined by the flow rate and the volume of the chemostat, regardless of what any other population is doing.

  • In the wiki, you can learn things like how to operate a microfluidic chemostat, and the favorite slogan to describe synthetic biology: “Making life better, one part at a time.”

  • The importance of basic studies on the physiology of the organism under conditions of continuous cultivation in a chemostat was discussed.

    Chapter 22

  • The alternatives to glucose cycling are: provide so much glucose that cell growth remains exponential up through the time of the next sampling; provide so little glucose that there is no cell division at all; or use a chemostat setup in which the glucose concentration can be maintained at a constant, arbitrary level indefinitely at the cost of vastly increased material and labor costs to the experimenter.
