KBase is an open platform for comparative functional genomics and systems biology for microbes, plants and their communities, and for sharing results and methods with other scientists.
Quantitative biologist Michael Schatz, a member of KBase’s plant science team, was just awarded an Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Research Fellowship in Computational & Evolutionary Molecular Biology. He was recognized for his innovative research in cloud computing and analysis of large biomedical data sets. Schatz is a faculty member at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL). […]
KBase will present in two formats at the invitation-only 2015 DOE Genomic Science Annual Contractors Meeting. On Monday and Tuesday, February 23-24, 2015, from 1:00pm – 7:00pm each day, the KBase Experience Room (Wolf Trap Room) will be available for all attendees to try KBase hands-on. In addition, Prof. Adam Arkin will present a short talk entitled “DOE Systems Biology Knowledgebase (KBase)” during the Wednesday, February 25, 2015 Plenary Session at 10:30am.
With the click of a button, KBase users can now transfer microbial genome reads from the DOE Joint Genome Institute (JGI) to KBase’s Narrative Interface for assembly, annotation, metabolic modeling, and more! The Push to KBase feature lets users select raw or quality-controlled read data from sequencing projects available on JGI’s website and add them to a Narrative of their choice, all in a few simple steps.
