The Escherichia coli whole-cell modeling project seeks to create the most detailed computational model of an E. coli cell in order to better understand and predict the behavior of this model organism. Details about the approach, framework, and current version of the model are discussed. Currently, the model includes the functions of 43% of characterized genes, with ongoing efforts to include additional data and mechanisms. As additional information is incorporated in the model, its utility and predictive power will continue to increase, which means that discovery efforts can be accelerated by community involvement in the generation and inclusion of data. This project will be an invaluable resource to the E. coli community that could be used to verify expected physiological behavior, to predict new outcomes and testable hypotheses for more efficient experimental design iterations, and to evaluate heterogeneous data sets in the context of each other through deep curation.
