Komagataella phaffii metabolic modeling and genome analysis

Here, we share imported datasets to enable analyses in KBase narratives. We've imported the published metabolic model of Komagataella phaffii (also, known as Pichia pastoris), which was built, manually curated, and validated by Andersen et al. (2008). The Komagataella phaffii genome was retrieved from NCBI RefSeq (GCF_000027005.1) and is described in the publication by Pel et al. (2007).

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