We present a brief overview of past and future applications of high performance computing in biofilm modeling. In particular we show that even relative simple two-dimensional models lead to computing expensive simulation experiments, due to data uncertainties inherent in all biofilm models.
Bacterial biofilms are complex microbial depositions on immersed interfaces that form wherever the environmental conditions sustain microbial growth. Despite their name, biofilms can develop in highly irregular structures. Recently several mathematical concepts have been introduced to model these spatially structured microbial populations. Regardless of the… (More)
