Multiscale, multiparadigm metabolic modeling of the keystone diazotrophic cyanobacterium, Trichodesmium erythraeum
Earth is a crowded place; studies estimate between 2 and 12 million species exist on earth, with new organisms being formally described every day. This biodiversity is a result of organisms being forced to cohabitate in innately competitive environments; proximity and nutrient limitation require organisms to interact. Current modeling techniques neglect many of these phenomena, considering cells as separate entities, homogeneous populations, or static members of a population. Biological data conflict with these models: organisms are highly dynamic even in the most ideal growth scenarios. Moreover, ...
