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.

Network maintenance Jun 24-27

Update noon CDT: the data center maintenance is complete, and we believe all systems are back to normal.  Please contact us if you have problems.

Our data center will be performing network maintenance Friday, June 24, to Monday, June 27, 2022.  All KBase services, including narrative.kbase.us, appdev.kbase.us, and all compute jobs will be unavailable during this time.  We will begin shutting down services at approximately 2pm CDT (12pm PDT) on June 24.  We hope to be able to restore service on the morning of June 27.

www.kbase.us and status.kbase.us will not be affected by this work.  We will update status.kbase.us as much as possible during the maintenance.

System maintenance May 25

We will be performing system maintenance on Wednesday, May 25, from 2-4pm PDT (4-6pm CDT).  narrative.kbase.us, compute jobs, and appdev.kbase.us may be unavailable or unstable for parts of this time.

We do not anticipate any interruption to www.kbase.us.
