Model Detail

- Population Balance Models
- “key” parameters (i.e. DNA, volume, age)
- Details are lumped and averaged
- Heterogeneous behavior

- Completely averaged
- X = [ ]

- Few state variables
- X = [size spatial_location internal_drug_level]

- More mechanistic
- X = [Cdk1 CycA CycE…]

- Population Balance
- Expected distribution among cells

Advantages

Simplified description of system

Flexible framework

Disadvantages

Proper identification of system (Burundi not the same as Denmark)

Identification of rates

- Transition rates (e.g. division rate)
- Rates of change – growth rates
- Constitutive model or experiments

- Birth and death rates
- Empirical
- PBM – vary with age and country
- Mechanistic – need to know the causes behind age-dependence

Hjortsø 2005

Advantages

Flexible framework

Disadvantages

Proper identification of system (Burundi not the same as Denmark)

Identification of rates

- Transition rates (e.g. division and rates)
- Rates of change – growth rates
- Constitutive model or experiments

- Changes in cell states
- Cell behavior (growth, division and death, and phase transitions) are functions of a cell’s state
