The First Major KBase Public Release is Now Available!

The initial public KBase release in January 2013 included only a few of the KBase analysis and database access services. Our February 2013 Developer’s Release includes a much more complete set of these services, as well as better user documentation and a wider set of web-based and downloadable products. New services in this release include FBA analysis, which supports the reconstruction, optimization, and analysis of genome-scale metabolic models; the Networks service, which enables access to data for protein-protein interaction, regulatory, metabolic, and functional association networks in microbes and plants; and the QC service, which offers asynchronous computation of quality information for metagenomic sequences.
