Using KBase for Biological Sampling, Inference, Modeling, and Prediction

KBase power user and University of Nebraska-Lincoln graduate student Mikaela Cashman has created a Narrative showcasing a workflow called BioSIMP (Biological Sampling, Inference, Modeling, and Prediction) that models and predicts the behavior of biological organisms. Based on phenotypic response to combinations of environmental factors BioSIMP uses software testing techniques to sample, classify the results to infer influential features, and build process models based on these inferences. This information can then be used to predict future behavior of biological systems. The workflow demonstrated in this Narrative is currently being refined and developed to allow KBase users to run Weka and BioSIMP as Apps.
