Welcome

MICOM is a Python package for metabolic modeling of microbial communities currently developed in the Gibbons Lab <https://gibbons.systemsbiology.org> at the Institute for Systems Biology <https://systemsbiology.org> and the Human Systems Biology Group <https://resendislab.github.io> of Prof. Osbaldo Resendis Antonio at the National Institute of Genomic Medicine Mexico <https://inmegen.gob.mx>.

MICOM allows you to construct a community model from a list on input COBRA models and manages exchange fluxes between individuals and individuals with the environment. It explicitly accounts for different abundances of individuals in the community and can thus incorporate data from biomass quantification, cytometry, ampliconsequencing, or metagenomic shotgun sequencing.

It identifies a relevant flux space by incorporating an ecological model for the trade-off between individual taxa growth and community-wide growth that shows good agreement with experimental data.
