Quantifying interactions between microbes using exometabolomic data

I am using concepts from community ecology, mechanistic modelling and statistics to develop quantitative metrics for predicting interactions between microbe strains from the exometabolomic data of individual strains. The data I am working with comes from the Web of Microbes, a database created by the Northen Lab, which contains changes in metabolite concentrations associated with individual microbes in different environments.
