The members of the dry lab are simulating the different components of the full system. Three main components can be identified:
  1. The difussion of the chemoattractant through the medium.
  2. The motion of the bacterias through the medium due to the gradient on the chemoattractant concentration.
  3. The chemoattractant generation within the bacteria.

Chemoattractant Diffusion

The basic equations for the diffusion of the chemoattractant in the medium are the Fick laws of diffusion, which govern the variation of the concentration of a substance within a medium.
