The model is a formal representation of system. The model is describe in terms of components. There are 4 component classes:

  • genes which are mandatory

  • genes which are accessory

  • genes which are neutral

  • genes which are forbiden

Each genes can have Exchangeable. An exchangeable is another gene which can paly the same role in the system. Usualy an analog or homolog. The models describe also distance constraints between genes:

  • inter_gene_max_space

  • loner

  • multi_loci

and quorum constraints

  • min_mandatory_genes_required

  • min_genes_required

and if a gene can be shared by several systems (several occurrences of the same model)

  • multisystem
