Pantograph: Inference of metabolic networks
Participants : David James Sherman [correspondant] , Pascal Durrens, Anna Zhukova.
Pantograph is a software tool developed by Nicolás Loira for his thesis, that infers whole-genome metabolic models for eukaryote cell factories from reference models and genome comparison. A novel feature of Pantograph is that it uses expert knowledge implicitly encoded in the scaffold's gene associations, and explicitly transfers this knowledge to the new model. Pantograph is available under an open-source license. For more information see the Pantograph Gforge web site. (http://pathtastic.gforge.inria.fr ).
