Abstract

Several modeling frameworks for describing and redirecting cellular metabolism have been developed keeping pace with the rapid development in high-throughput data generation and advances in metabolic engineering techniques. The incorporation of kinetic information within stoichiometry-only modeling techniques offers potential advantages for improved phenotype prediction and consequently more precise computational strain design. In addition to substrate-level kinetic regulatory information, the integration of a number of additional layers of regulation at the transcription, translation, and post-translation levels is sought after by many research groups. However, the practical integration of these complex biological processes into a unified framework amenable to design remains an ongoing challenge.
