Resources — for educators, by educators

The KBase Educators Community stemmed from instructors looking to create and share teaching resources for using the KBase platform with their students. Together, the community developed modular workflows to provide their students with research-based experiences around bioinformatics and systems biology using KBase that connect to biological concepts.

Data center network maintenance 1/22-1/23

Update Jan 19: we have been told that different network maintenance will be performed over the weekend of January 22-23.  We have not been told an exact time, nor whether there will be an outage, nor a duration of any possible outages.  We will continue to post updates if we get them.

Our data center will be performing network maintenance on Monday, January 24, 2022.  This outage should last approximately 10 minutes, and will cause disruption to narrative.kbase.us, appdev.kbase.us, and possibly compute jobs.  We have not yet been notified of a specific time, if we are told a time we will update this message.

Holiday reduced support

The KBase helpdesk will have limited or no staff during the last two weeks of the year (Dec. 20-Jan. 1). There will be delays in responding to tickets.
