Suuose is an imp01-tant macromolecule that is used in o1·ganisms including Plasmodium falciparum (P.f) to genemte glucose which is used f01· ene1·gy production in the glycolysis pathway. In numerous 1·eseai-ch projects on modelling and analyzing biological pathways, Petd net has been 1·ecognized as a pmmising method f01· 1·ep1·esenting biological pathways. A metabolic pathway is an inte1-connected sedes of enzymatic 1·eactions that occm· within a cell. It consists of consecutive chemical 1·eactions, which tmnsf01·m input compound(s) (substmtes) via several inte1·mediate compounds into an output compound (]). This pape1· focuses on the use of Col01·ed Petd Net to construct an in-silico metabolic netw01·k that shows the interactions between the metabolites and the 1·eactions in the suuose biosynthesis pathway of Plasmodium falciparum (P.f) and fm·the1· analyze the model fo1· its structural and quantitative pmpe1-ties using Petd net theo1·y. Om· model gives mo1·e insight to the structure of the pathway and helps to improve om· understanding of the biological processes within this pathway.
