structural properties of biochemical reaction networks. Octave and Matlab version.
Previous version 5.0
METATOOL 4.x Program for computing the nullspace matrix, elementary modes and other structural
properties of biochemical reaction networks. Stand-alone version.

Reducing the number of modes

A program to calculate elementary modes for the complete variety of external and
internal metabolites and a program to calculate the approximated minimal number of modes
NAD+ metabolism Visualisation of all the elementary modes computed with Metatool 5.1 in the analysis of the
 NAD+ metabolic network. More details about this analysis can be found in
de Figueiredo et al. 2011. Additional information about each elementary mode is displayed
 in the accompanying table.
