Structures and Hyperstructures in Metabolic Networks
There has been an increasing interest by the computational biology community in the study of chemical reactions within cells; indeed cells can be considered as chemical factories that manufacture the various products of the cells and the metabolic capacities of an organism are directly defined by the set of its possible biochemical reactions. The links between reactions and compounds (or metabolites) that are used and produced by such reactions constitute the metabolic network an organism.
