Comments P.350 bottom paragraph: "Several fed batch methods for carbon source feeding that can maintain low acetate levels were developed. These methods are based on mathematical models that describe growth patterns and the expected demand for nutrients. The models are based on the generally accepted average value of E. coli yield on glucose (0.5 g/g) and the elemental analysis of E. coli cells (C:N:P:S ratio)."
