Mathematical Modeling and Computational Analysis and Design of Metabolic Reaction Networks

Metabolic engineering is the science of analyzing and designing of complex metabolic and cellular processes. The fundamentals of metabolic engineering are based on chemical reaction engineering and process systems engineering. Mathematical modeling and computational analysis are essential components of these fundamentals. We will discuss the contributions of mathematical modeling and computational modeling to the field of metabolic engineering and we will present some of our recent work in this area.
