Representation of the use of FBA to study the complex host-microbe interactions. A bacterial metabolic compartment is placed in a compartment which is connected to a metabolic compartment representing a host cell. The host cell compartment is connected to another compartment representing the bloodstream of the host. Arrows between the different compartments indicate exchange reactions. Solid arrows represent influx of metabolites into the system, which represents metabolites originating from the diet and/or metabolites present in the bloodstream. Dashed arrows represent efflux of metabolites out of the system symbolizing metabolites excreted in feces and/or translocating in the bloodstream
