None of these have been reported to be tested in-vivo or in-silico . In-vivo testing would be extremely difficult as M.genitalium is very difficult to grow in the laboratory and laborious to engineer. However, the M.genitalium whole-cell model provides the first opportunity to test them in-silico . We simulated t…
