Plant metabolism Content Plant metabolism Content for Department of Plant Sciences en Using Machine Learning to Predict Metabolic Pathways in Tomatoes Understanding the steps in metabolic and biochemical pathways is difficult to determine. Scientists at UC Davis and Ben-Gurion University applied machine learning (artificial intelligence) techniques to this problem in tomatoes, and predicted new, previously unknown metabolic pathways.
