This paper describes a bacterial system that reproduces a population of bacteria that behave by simulating the internal reactions of each bacterial cell. The chemotaxis network of a cell is modulated by a hybrid approach that uses an algebraic model for the receptor clusters activity and an ordinary differential equation for the adaptation dynamics. The experiments are defined in order to simulate bacterial growth in an environment where nutrients are regularly added to it. The results show analysis of the motion obtained by some bacteria and their effects on the population behaviors generated by evolution. This evolution allows bacteria to have the ability to adapt themselves to better growth in the available food existed in its environment and to survive.
