Kluyveromyces lactis metabolic modeling and genome analysis

Here, we share imported datasets to enable analyses in KBase narratives. We've imported the published metabolic model of Kluyveromyces lactis, which was built, manually curated, and validated by Dias et al. (2014). The Kluyveromyces lactis genome was retrieved from NCBI RefSeq (GCF_000027005.1) and is described in the publication by Dujon et al. (2004).

Furthermore, genome analysis tools and datasets can be accessed at the MycoCosm portal page:
