maybe this is more bioengineering than biology but I didn't find any such group.
And I was asked to do the following for the network inside the red area.
1) Write the stoichiometric matrix for the network
2) Draw a pathway map for the network
3) Draw primary metabolite connectivity maps
4) Write the mass balance equations for primary metabolites
I know that for the first one the columns are the reactions taking place and the lines are the "chemicals". Should the markings on the columns be the same as the numbers that are written on each reaction? (like "188.8.131.52") Almost every reaction can go in both direction, is there anything that says which chemical should get minus and which one gets plus? My attempt at the matrix was:
As for the pathway map, isn't that basically the photo is given?
And finally what would be a "primary metabolite" in this case?
All help and hints very well appreciated!
