Improving the flux distributions simulated with genome-scale metabolic models of Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Abstract Genome-scale metabolic models (GEMs) can be used to evaluate genotype-phenotype relationships and their application to microbial strain engineering is increasing in popularity. Some of the algorithms used to simulate the phenotypes of mutant strains require the determination of a wild-type flux distribution. However, the accuracy of this reference, when calculated with flux balance analysis, has not been studied in detail before. Here, the wild-type simulations of selected GEMs for Saccharomyces cerevisiae have been analysed and most of the models tested predicted erroneous fluxes in ...
