Table 5 Productivities of T. erythraeum according to literature, laboratory experiments, and the dFBA model

From: The use of genome-scale metabolic network reconstruction to predict fluxes and equilibrium composition of N-fixing versus C-fixing cells in a diazotrophic cyanobacterium, Trichodesmium erythraeum
