Organism Bacteria Escherichia coli
Reference Edwards JS, Palsson BO. The Escherichia coli MG1655 in silico metabolic genotype: its definition, characteristics, and capabilities. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2000 May 9 97(10):5528-33. p.5529 left columnPubMed ID10805808
Method P.5529 left column: "The metabolic capabilities of the in silico metabolic genotype were partially defined by mass balance constraints mathematically represented by a matrix equation: S•v=0. The matrix S is the m×n stoichiometric matrix, where m is the number of metabolites and n is the number of reactions in the network. The E. coli stoichiometric matrix was 436×720."
