Protocol Extensions

  • Protocol Extension |

    In this Protocol Extension, the authors extend their original Protocol used to generate a genome-scale metabolic model for a single strain to enable multi-strain models to be made, which can be used to study pan-metabolic capabilities and strain-specific differences across a species.
