Enzyme Cost Minimization - a package for calculating the minimal enzyme cost of a metabolic pathway

Project description


Enzyme Cost Minimization (ECM) is a method for estimating the specific cost in
enzymes for sustaining a given flux, given a kinetic model.

You can read more about ECM at [PLOS CB](

If you only want to try out ECM without installing anything locally, we have
a simple web interface at [eQuilibrator](

Otherwise, you can install ECM from PyPI:
pip install enzyme-cost-minimization

Or get the source code from this repository. In that case, you'll have to
install the following dependencies:
- PyPI packages:
- numpy
- scipy
- matplotlib
- optlang
- pandas
- sbtab
- equilibrator-api

Try running the example script:
python -m example.test
