Results and Simulations
Growth Rate vs Concentration results (below) support what was expected out of this system. It begins by linearly increasing with concentration, reaches a maximum then decreases in growth rate.
It was of interest to explore the geometry of the growth as the simulation runs on kinked and nonkinked site. A pictorial representation of kinked and nonkinked sites precedes the data.
I was able to gather some initial data on these sites and gather data on growth rate simultaneously.
It was interesting to see that well bonded kink sites scale with the growth rate. However, past the systems peak growth, good kink binds seem to be leveling off. More work on this is certainly warranted and encouraged.
Below are some movies of simulations from early in the summer. (Note: They sometimes take time to load or lag a little)
