Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The UM-BBD Pathway Prediction System (UM-PPS, predicts microbial catabolism of organic compounds. We improved UM-PPS infrastructure to improve pathway prediction results. We added the ability to allow relative reasoning and variable aerobic likelihood. One relative reasoning entry decreased choices 75% with no loss of sensitivity. Variable aerobic likelihood gives more accurate likelihood for rules triggered by substrates with certain chemical structures. Predictions are improved.
