What is metano?
All methods implemented in MPI, which allows their execution on computer clusters.are available both as Python functions and as stand-alone command line scripts, which take lists of reactions in plain ASCII format as input. is designed to run in any Linux environment. Algorithms with a long running time have been parallelized using
As all tools are available as stand-alone scripts that require no adjustment of numerical parameters,is very easy to use by modelers without any programming experience.
Web-based modeling via MMTB
To complement the stand-alone scripts, we provide MMTB, a web-based toolbox for the generation and analysis of metabolic models. MMTB provides the following:
- Closing the gap between BKMS and EnzymeDetector: biochemical reactions are associated to genome annotations and prepared for the use in metabolic modeling
- Further information on metabolites and the assembly of reactions into pathways support during model generation
- Analysis and visualization of metabolic models: an interface to the modeling toolbox Metano provides online flux balance analysis and a metabolite-centric view of networks
A quick reference for almost all here.functions can be found
