A collaborative, open environment for systems biology
of plants, microbes and their communities
In KBase, you can create shareable, reproducible workflows called Narratives that include data, analysis steps, results, visualizations and commentary.
Narrative tutorials demonstrate how to use KBase’s data and analysis tools:
KBase annotation and metabolic modeling pipelines were used to analyze a 13-species electrosynthetic community that captures electrons from a cathode and fixes carbon dioxide. Metabolic models of the predominant community members revealed that Acetobacterium is the primary carbon fixer for the community, excreting large amounts of acetate which serves as the main carbon source for the rest of the community.
In a Journal of Cellular Physiology cover article, KBase scientist Christopher Henry and collaborators demonstrate strategies for constructing genome-scale metabolic networks that simulate two species in a microbial consortium exchanging metabolites to sustain life.
Analyze a wide range of public bioinformatics data together with your own data.
