Abstract

This contribution aims at the development of a modular and object-oriented framework for the modeling of the entity of all metabolic reactions including their regulations as a collection of interacting subsystems. The purposes of this framework lie in facilitating model development, adaption and reuse. Additionally, the presented methodology can be seen as a first step towards the development of a common communication framework, to support the interdisciplinary research in biotechnology and biochemical engineering. For the development of this framework ideas from general system theory, object-oriented programming and knowledge representation are employed.
