In silico conversion of glucose/xylose mixture by iSS886 in three reactors in series. In the first reactor the glucose is the only substrate for growth, and in the second a mixture of glucose/xylose is used as substrate. In the third reactor only xylose was consumed. The simulations were done based on cell growth as the objective function. The ethanol production rate and specific growth rate are also reported.
