Metstoich--Teaching Quantitative Metabolism and Energetics in Biochemical Engineering
Wong, Kelvin W. W.; Barford, John P.
Chemical Engineering Education, v44 n2 p147-156 Spr 2010
Metstoich, a metabolic calculator developed for teaching, can provide a novel way to teach quantitative metabolism to biochemical engineering students. It can also introduce biochemistry/life science students to the quantitative aspects of life science subjects they have studied. Metstoich links traditional biochemistry-based metabolic approaches with practical engineering parameters. This allows students to understand the relationship between the quantitative aspects of metabolism and practical engineering applications.
