This short course will provide an overview of metabolic network analysis, a topic at the intersection of computational biology, systems biology and mathematical modelling. It will go into detail into the modeling and analysis of metabolic networks in the constraint-based formalism, which complement metabolomics data analysis. By the end of the course the students will have an appreciation for the advantages and shortcomings of metabolic network models, the tools used for their analysis, and the open problems currently facing the field. They will also learn the use of Mongoose, an open-source metabolic network analysis platform (mongoose.csail.mit.edu).
