In metabolic network modelling, the accuracy of kinetic parameters has become more important over the last two decades. Even a small perturbation in kinetic parameters may cause major changes in a model's response. The focus of this study is to identify the kinetic parameters, using two distinct approaches: firstly, a One-at-a-Time Sensitivity Measure, performed on 185 kinetic parameters, which represent glycolysis, pentose phosphate, TCA cycle, gluconeogenesis, glycoxylate pathways, and

Seven kinetic parameters were found to be highly affected in the model response; secondly, particle swarm optimization was applied for kinetic parameter identification of a metabolic network model. The simulation results proved the effectiveness of the proposed method.
