abstract={Microalgae have been proposed as potential platform to produce lipid-derived products, such as biofuels. Knowledge on the intracellular carbon flow distribution may identify key metabolic processes during lipid synthesis thus refining culture/genetic strategies to maximize cell lipid productivity. A kinetic metabolic model simulating cell metabolic behavior and lipid production was first applied in the microalgae platform Chlorella protothecoides under heterotrophic condition. It combines both physiology and flux information in a kinetic approach. Cell nutrition, growth, lipid production and almost 30 metabolic intermediates covering central carbon metabolism were included and simulated.},
