Abstract : Vitelbio is a simulator of the microbial activity in soils, for which the spatialization is represented as a network of interconnected reservoirs. The software allows to draw an interconnections graph, that respects the constraint of the maximum flow, and to choose the biological characteristics of various bacterial species in competition for a single nutrient. The simulator computes the time evolutions of the different populations in each compartment, and compares the overall yielding of the ecosystem in terms of bio-conversion of the substrate. This software has been developed in the framework of the INRA/INRIA project VITELBIO (VIrtual TELluric BIOreactors), with the help of the company ITK. It is today mainly used for educational purposes (in MSC and PhD lectures).
