This program is an example for pyk mutant of E. coli.

Input data:
EM matrix, enzyme activity ratio, Elementary Mode Coefficients (EMCs).
Output data:
fluxcalu, fluxmean.

EmMatrix is the elementary mode matrix; reactions*EMs;
ramdaMatrix is the elementary mode coefficients vector; EMs*(2*EMs);
ns is the No. of substrate uptake reaction in stoichiometric matrix;
sflux is the flux of substrate uptake;
enzyme is the relative enzyme activity ratio of mutant versus wild type;
