Reconstructing a metabolic network consists in drafting the list of the biochemical reactions that an organism can carry out together with information on cellular boundaries, a biomass assembly reaction, and exchange fluxes with the external environment. Building up models able to represent the different functional cellular states is universally recognized as a tricky task that requires intensive manual effort and much additional information besides genome sequence.
