Carbon Metabolic Fluxomics
Photoautotrophic carbon fluxomics
Our goal is to use flux balance analysis (FBA, left figure) and isotopically nonstationary metabolic flux analysis (INST-MFA, right figure) to quantitatively understand carbon flux distributions and pathway utilizations of the cyanobacterium Synechococcus sp. PCC 7002 during photosynthesis. The outcome also helps discover new roles of existing metabolic pathways.
