Enhancing genetic algorithm-based genome-scale metabolic network curation efficiency.- Academic Article uri icon


  • Genome-scale metabolic modeling using constraint-based analysis is a powerful modeling paradigm for simulating metabolic networks. Models are generated via inference from genome annotations. However, errors in the annotation or the identity of a gene's function could lead to "metabolic inconsistency" rendering simulations infeasible. Uncovering the source of metabolic inconsistency is non-trivial due to network size and complexity. Recently published work uses genetic algorithms for curation by generating pools of models with randomly relaxed mass balance constraints.
