Table I. A summary of the results of various (flux balance) analyses on the Synechocystis model

When optimizing for biofuel production, we fixed the growth rate to 10% of its maximum. The constraints that were used for each of these simulations can be found in Supplemental Data S2. Jhv, Photon flux; KO AEF, knockout of AEF pathways; JRubisco,Co2/Jhv, Rubisco carboxylase flux divided by the photon flux; J23BD, 2,3-butanediol flux; μ(h−1), growth rate.
