Narrative Tutorials

The tutorials marked with * are Narrative tutorials, which are Narratives that demonstrate how to use KBase tools and data. These allow you to follow the steps in a workflow, explore the results generated by the analyses, and understand how to interpret them, all within the KBase Narrative Interface. To access a Narrative, you will need to sign up for a free KBase account.





Not yet updated for Release 3.0

The instructions in most of these tutorials are for KBase Release 2.0. The December 2016 release looks a bit different, though the overall operation is similar. The tutorials will be updated soon.

KBase’s Narrative Interface enables researchers to design and carry out computational experiments while creating Narratives: interactive, reproducible records of the data, steps, and thought processes underpinning the results. Narratives can include any number of analysis steps in the form of KBase apps (which you will also see referred to as “methods,” though we are phasing out that term). Some of the apps are tools that were written by KBase scientists and developers; others are third-party tools that were integrated into KBase via our new Software Developer Kit (SDK).

The tutorials listed on this page include step-by-step walkthroughs that show how to use the KBase apps to analyze example data. You can copy the examples and then use the apps on your own data.

Please contact us if you have questions or comments about any tutorial, or if you’d like to request that we add a new tutorial.
