Short summary
Microcoleus vaginatus, a filamentous cyanobacteria, is a primary producer and pioneer in desert biological soil crusts (BSCs). Previous studies have suggested that biopolymers play a central role in M. vaginatus' ability to survive in arid conditions. We have developed a genome-scale metabolic model with experimental validation to elucidate the mechanism of this phenomenon and predict survival during pulsed-activity events, providing a basis for future modeling of BSCs.
