Cell metabolic network reconstruction

This documentation is under construction. Please give us your feedbacks by contacting us at hub@gencovery.com.

The use case presents main steps to create and prepare a metabolic network of an organism without data or with custom core genome information.
It also presents how to visualise and navigate though the network and extract meaningful information on the model :

  • number of compounds and reactions
  • mass and charge balance of each reactions
  • dead-end metabolites
  • etc.

The use case is organise in two parts

  • creation of a model without data, i.e. using the taxonomy id of the organism
  • creation of a model using genome information

Final networks can be used to simulate and predict the metabolism of the organism in different context (custom cell culture, Gene KO).
