A collaborative, open environment for systems biology

of plants, microbes and their communities

KBase: The U.S. Department of Energy Systems Biology Knowledgebase



In KBase, you can create shareable, reproducible workflows called Narratives that include data, analysis steps, results, visualizations and commentary.

Research Highlights

Accurately predicting biosynthetic energy yields is a challenging problem. In work published in BMC Genomics, KBase scientists developed new analysis tools that allowed them to address this problem by building core metabolic models representing 48 major phylogenetic microbial groups.

In a cover article in the Journal of Cellular Physiology, KBase scientist Christopher Henry and collaborators demonstrate strategies for constructing genome-scale metabolic networks that simulate two species in a microbial consortium exchanging metabolites to sustain life.
