Metabolic Models at Community Scale
A/Prof. Tian-Yu Zhang
Department of Mathematical Sciences, Montana State University, USA

Models of microbial community dynamics generally rely on some sub-system scale model for microbial metabolisms. Here we propose a model which combines cellular level metabolic flux analysis with macroscale microbial community models. The methodology easily allows coupling of macroscale information with cell-scale metabolism. In particular, we present a forward problem model which aims at predicting the system pro-file, and an inverse problem model which aims at providing uncertainty estimates when only partial data of the system is available.
