Version 6 of Consensus Yeast Metabolic Network Released

Ben Heavner, of ISB’s Price Lab, and his collaborators have published in The Journal of Biological Databases and Curation.

Excerpt from Abstract:

Updates to maintain a state-of-the art reconstruction of the yeast metabolic network are essential to reflect our understanding of yeast metabolism and functional organization, to eliminate any inaccuracies identified in earlier iterations, to improve predictive accuracy and to continue to expand into novel subsystems to extend the comprehensiveness of the model. Here, we present version 6 of the consensus yeast metabolic network (Yeast 6) as an update to the community effort to computationally reconstruct the genome-scale metabolic network of Saccharomyces cerevisiae S288c.
