Bacterial swimming alternates between straight runs for several seconds and tumbles into random directions. Chemotactic bacteria remember nutrient sensing history, change tumble frequency to move toward nutrients. A question that has not been addressed is the significance of the nutrition gain and multiplication of bacterial population with chemotaxis mechanism. To quantify these effects, we introduce a microsimulation model, which seamlessly integrates detailed observations and assumptions about single bacterial tumbles, noisy sensing and nutrient uptake for studying up to a few millions of them in a population. We use the model to simulate absorption of nutrients from lysis and agar plates. Contrary to an intuitive feeling that chemotaxis could be useful under nutrient starvation, we see a significant effect only under nutrient rich conditions where bacteria with chemotaxis outgrow their non-chemotactic counterparts by hundreds of times. The model offers the flexibility to study the consequences of newer assumptions, and experimental conditions.
