Combining a computational framework for flux balance analysis with machine learning improves the accuracy of predicting metabolic activity across conditions, while enabling mechanistic interpretation. This protocol presents a guide to condition-specific metabolic modeling that integrates regularized flux balance analysis with machine learning approaches to extract key features from transcriptomic and fluxomic data. We demonstrate the protocol as applied to Synechococcus sp. PCC 7002; we also outline how it can be adapted to any species or community with available multi-omic data.
