Show Summary Details


Summary: FBA-SimVis is a VANTED plug-in for the constraint-based analysis of metabolic models with special focus on the visual exploration of metabolic flux data resulting from model analysis. The program provides a user-friendly environment for model reconstruction, constraint-based model analysis, and interactive visualization of the simulation results. With the ability to quantitatively analyse metabolic fluxes in an interactive and visual manner, FBA-SimVis supports a comprehensive understanding of constraint-based metabolic flux models in both overview and detail.
