Look into
J. Theoret Biol. 1993, vol 161, 231-249.
Neural Networks in Biomedicine, 1994, page 351, World Scientific.
references reported there contain a good base to start.
The beginning of these ideas started around 1963 with Sugita, Jacob, Monod.
See also a ref. search for Newman and Rice, and theoretically Bruce Clarke.
All this stuff is not properly metabolism, ... but complex chemistry,
and gene expression et similia ... by the way .. Stuart Kauffman is
another name to look for of course.
