Nature has created elaborate networks of reactions to convert substrates into the building blocks of living cells as well as a myriad of natural products. The biosynthetic pathways responsible for each metabolite produced have a certain material and energetic "cost" associated with them. The theoretical calculation of these costs aid in analyzing metabolic… CONTINUE READING
