Procedural overview. The multi-goal metabolic engineering process incorporates three main decision-variable components: (1) organism model definitions, (2) imposed environmental and genetic conditions, and (3) extraction of desirable engineering metrics and goals. The resultant extracellular engineering phenotypes, relationships between the decision variables, and intracellular pathway activity can then be analyzed and experimentally verified to provide mechanistic insight and achieve optimal engineering designs.
