KBase: The Department of Energy Systems Biology Knowledgebase

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.


Some KBase services temporarily unavailable

Due to a hardware move, some KBase services are not working, including search. We hope to have everything restored soon.

KBase at ASPB Plant Biology 2016

KBase attended the 2016 ASPB Plant Biology conference in Austin, TX, from July 9-13. Staff hosted an exhibit booth shared with the DOE Joint Genome Institute, and participated in a shared workshop session on Plant Bioinformatics Resources. Nearly 100 people came by the booth to learn more about KBase and let staff know their needs […]

Applying KBase to Predict Interspecies Interactions with Validation from Transcriptomic Data

Life as we know it depends on the existence of microbial communities (microbiomes), in which multiple species of microbes function collaboratively with each other to extract nutrients and energy from their environment. An upcoming article in the Journal of Cellular Physiology, written by a team of scientists from Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) and Pacific Northwest […]
