-simulation is functional
The e-Photosynthesis, including all the necessary enzyme regulation
mechanisms, provides the first in the world complete representation
of photosynthesis process. This model can be used to test hypothesis
regarding different signals related to photosynthesis, such
as CO2 uptake kinetics and fluorescence induction kinetics.
E-Photosynthesis is able to predict the dynamics of ATP and
NADPH formation under dynamic light and CO2 conditions.
A Genetic algorithm combined with our e-Photosynthesis provides
a workbench to easily and economically identifying potential
target to modify for higher photosynthetic carbon uptake and
correspondingly crop yield. The e-Photosynthesis model that
we developed provides one interface for utilization of the large
amount of genomic, proteiomic, and metabolomics data and to
infer the functional significance of changes in the protein
and metabolite levels in specific environmental conditions.
