Method The quantum requirement of each of the phototrophic carbon fixation pathways was calculated from the FBA (Flux Balance Analysis) model results
Comments Quantum requirement is a commonly used ratio to compare the efficiency of phototrophic organisms. The quantum requirement is defined as the ratio of photons absorbed per CO2 fixed.
