Microbial Kitchen R package

 GitHub  |  Launch

The Microbial Kitchen R package is a collection of tools to simplify working with the chemical composition and speciation of defined culture media for microbial physiology and environmental microbiology research. It includes a wide range of general purpose functionality for chemical applications including built-in, data-frame-compatible chemical quantities (volume, mass, molarity, temperature, pressure, etc.) that automatically keep track of their units and metric scaling, as well as more specialized tools for the assembly and comparison of culturing media recipes, pH buffering strategies and aqueous speciation.

Planned expansions of this R package include easy comparison of culture media recipes as well as modeling and visualization of chemically static (ChemoStat) cultures.
