framed - metabolic modeling for python

Project Description


framed is a python package for analysis and simulation of metabolic models. The main focus is to provide support for different modeling approaches.

  • Modeling: Constraint-based models, Kinetic models, Bioprocess models
  • I/O: Import/Export from SBML and/or plain text formats
  • Solver support: Gurobi, CPLEX, GLPK
  • COBRA tools:
    • Simulation: FBA, pFBA, loopless-FBA, MOMA, linearMOMA, ROOM
    • Analysis: FVA, gene essentiality, PhPP, flux envelope plots
    • Omics integration: GIMME, E-Flux
    • Strain design: brute force, hill climbing
  • Kinetic tools:
    • Time-course and steady-state simulation
    • Parameter and flux sampling
    • Calibration from metabolomics data
  • Bioprocess modeling: Dynamic FBA (single and multi-species)


For documentation and API please check:
