KbioBox Bioinformatics Portal

KBioBox has released the KbioBox bioinformatics portal that includes a “3 click” gene editing off target analysis program and a “3 Click” gene edit biodesign program. The gene edit off target analysis solution identifies off targets in whole genomes while the gene edit design analysis solution provides top ten biodesigns based on input information. Both solutions return simple annotated reports that include intuitive visualizations, locus information, and whole-genome off target analysis for designs.
