KBase Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC)

A new KBase Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) was formed in January 2016. Members are eminent scientific leaders who will help us ensure that, moving forward, KBase serves the current and future needs of the broad biological research community. They will be active participants in feature prioritization and community engagement to help guide the development of new scientific functionality in KBase. The SAC will meet quarterly with KBase leads; the first meeting will be held in conjunction with the annual KBase User Meeting in Walnut Creek, CA in March.

The SAC members are:

  • Bernhard Palsson (University of California–San Diego)
  • Ed Buckler (Cornell University)
  • Rob Knight (University of California–San Diego)
  • Todd Mockler (Donald Danforth Plant Science Center)
  • Jennifer Reed (University of Wisconsin–Madison)
  • Judy Wall (University of Missouri)
  • Bryan White (University of Illinois Urbana–Champaign)
  • Barny Whitman (University of Georgia)

Brief bios of each member can be found on the SAC page.
