Abstract

© 2018 Society for Modeling & Simulation International (SCS). Efficient energy transduction is one driver of evolution; and thus understanding biomolecular energy transduction is crucial to understanding living organisms. As an energy-orientated modelling methodology, bond graphs provide a useful approach to describing and modelling the efficiency of living systems. This paper gives some new results on the efficiency of metabolism based on bond graph models of a key metabolic process: glycolysis.
