Simulated growth of G. metallireducens with nitrate as electron acceptor. Growth of G. metallireducens was simulated using different electron donors under donor-limiting conditions. Biomass yields were predicted for both electron donor (gdw/mol substrate) and electron acceptor (gdw/mol nitrate). The ratios of nitrate to electron donors are also shown in the figure.
