Genome-scale metabolic networks make it possible to model all the known chemical transformations in the metabolism of a given organism. Comparing them on a large scale means overcoming the problems of heterogeneity among the available genomes. In an article published in Genome Research, scientists from LBI2M, the Roscoff Biological Station and IRISA propose an approach for constructing networks of homogeneous quality that can be compared from an evolutionary perspective.
