Instruction for Enzyme Control Flux (ECF)
ECF is an algorithm for the estimation of a flux distribution of genetic mutants by integrating enzyme activity into Elementary Modes (EMs).

This program is an example for pyk mutant of E. coli.
EM matrix, enzyme activity ratio, Elementary Mode Coefficients (EMCs).
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;
