Folker Meyer gives KBase tutorial

August 27, 2013

Folker Meyer, computational biologist in Argonne’s mathematics and Computer Science Division and KBase’s Microbial Communities lead, presented a tutorial about KBase at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, on August 15, 2013.

KBase, the U.S. Department of Energy Systems Biology Knowledgebase, is a software and data environment designed to enable researchers to collaboratively generate, test, and share new hypotheses about gene and protein functions; perform large-scale analyses on the KBase scalable computing infrastructure; and model interactions in microbes, plants, and their communities.

Meyer’s tutorial focused on how to analyze genomic and systems biology data in KBase by using the KBase application programming interface.
