fbar: An Extensible Approach to Flux Balance Analysis

A toolkit for Flux Balance Analysis and related metabolic modeling techniques. Functions are provided for: parsing models in tabular format, converting parsed metabolic models to input formats for common linear programming solvers, and evaluating and applying gene-protein-reaction mappings. In addition, there are wrappers to parse a model, select a solver, find the metabolic fluxes, and return the results applied to the original model. Compared to other packages in this field, this package puts a much heavier focus on providing reusable components that can be used in the design of new implementation of new techniques, in particular those that involve large parameter sweeps. For a background on the theory, see What is Flux Balance Analysis <doi:10.1038/nbt.1614>.
