Gobbolino & Touché

Functional Description

Gobbolino and Touché were designed to solve the metabolic stories problem, which consists in finding all maximal directed acyclic subgraphs of a directed graph G whose sources and targets belong to a subset of the nodes of G, called the black nodes. Biologically, stories correspond to alternative metabolic pathways that may explain some stress that affected the metabolites corresponding to the black nodes by changing their concentration (measured by metabolomics experiments).
