I am a graduate student in computer science with focus on system modeling in telecom.  As I move 
into my phd program, I am trying to move to  modeling biological systems from our basic 
expertise in modeling complex networks. So now, I am a grduate student involved in systems 
biology. I am trying to develop a simulation where in I need to know the size of the pool of ATP 
molecules (or equivalents) in a bacterial cell.

I understand that high fidelity quantitative data might not be available, but a ball park figure on 
what would be a valid assumption would be very helpful.
