Gene Inactivity Moderated by Metabolism and Expression (GIMME)

General concept

This method builds context-specific models that predict which pathways are expressed on possibly used in a cell. This approach sets a lower bound on the objective function and then finding the network topology that is able to attain the desired objective value, while minimizing a penalty score for adding reactions associated with non-expressed genes (i.e., reactions with gene expression lower than a user-specified threshold). The penalty score is the sum of the flux-adjusted difference between the absolute gene expression level and the threshold value.
