About the Software

OpenFLUX is a MATLAB-based modelling software for 13C metabolic flux analysis (MFA). Modern techniques like EMUs are implemented for efficient computing.

A typical MFA with OpenFLUX consists of

  1. model set up (in a spreadsheed application like Open/ Calc or MS Office Excel),
  2. model generation using the Java GUI distributed with OpenFLUX,
  3. and the analysis itself in Matlab.

A series of screenshots depicts this procedure.
