Method Abstract: "Here, [researchers] investigated the qualitative and quantitative aspects of biomass equations from GEMs of eight different yeast species."
Comments P.5: "[Investigators] also examined the source of biomass composition used in each GEM to assess their quality. Several components were borrowed from one model to another with S. cerevisiae being the common ancestor (Figure 1B). Inevitably, such heavy cross-referencing of macromolecular components led to overall biomass composition with a very similar level of resolution (Figure 1C)."
