About the DOE Systems Biology Knowledgebase (KBase)

Community-Driven Cyberinfrastructure for Sharing and Integrating Data and Analytical Tools to Accelerate Predictive Biology

The Department of Energy Systems Biology Knowledgebase (KBase)┬áis an open software and data platform that aims to enable researchers to predict and ultimately design biological function. KBase’s unified data model allows users to perform integrated analyses across plants, microbes, and their communities with a wide range of tools that interoperate across the tree of life, and to publish their data, methods, results and thoughts in persistent, citable, executable, and reusable electronic narratives that allow scientists to build on the work of others. KBase's open platform will enable external developers to integrate their analysis tools, facilitating distribution, comparative tool analysis, and access to enterprise-class computing.
