The re­searchers de­scribe the model in a pa­per in the May is­sue of the jour­nal Na­ture Biotech­nol­ogy. They have made the model freely avail­able online, at www.hu­man­metabolism.org, and they’re al­ready at work mak­ing it even more com­pre­hen­sive. “This is re­ally a start­ing point,” Papin said. “The model has much, much to be im­proved, for sure. But in the end what we want to be able to do is have a com­puter model of the whole cell, and with that com­puter model hope­fully be able to make all kinds of use­ful pre­dic­tions and guide new ex­per­i­ments and help in­ter­pret new data that’s gen­er­ated. So while this is a first step, I think it’s an im­por­tant, big first step.”
