Title: Agent-based Modeling for Adaptive Evolution

Abstract: The goal of this talk is to introduce some agent-based models to describe the evolution of structured biological populations. I will review some of the main questions in the modeling such as
      -how to structure the population, phenotypic traits vs. genotypic?
      -how to model reproduction?
      -how to handle large and small sub-populations at the same time?

I will also present the basic chemostat setting that is commonly used for theoretical studies and an example of application to cellulose bio-degradation.
