Tools

This resource provides access to BESC related tools. These include database and analysis tools developed at ORNL and UGA. BESC is also collaborating with KBase (DOE Systems Biology Knowledgebase) through the development of several core shared projects that leverage and focus KBase development to reduce bottlenecks and enable our science as well as provide a route for sharing BESC computational tools and data to a wider audience.

DOE KBASE

KBase

The Department of Energy Systems Biology Knowledgebase (KBase) is a large-scale software and data platform designed to meet the grand challenge of systems biology: predicting and ultimately designing 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 enables secure sharing of data, tools, and conclusions in a unified, extensible system that allows researchers to collaboratively generate, test, and share hypotheses about molecular and cellular functions. Users can perform large-scale analyses on KBase's scalable computing infrastructure and combine multiple lines of evidence to model with increasing accuracy plant and microbial physiology and community dynamics.
