NCBI Bioinformatics Tools: An Introduction

Workshop | February 2 | 12-1 p.m. | Valley Life Sciences Building, Bioscience Library Training Room, 2101 VLSB

 Elliott Smith, Emerging Technologies and Bioinformatics Librarian, Library


A hands-on workshop introducing NCBI bioinformatics tools such as PubMed, Gene, Protein, Nucleotide, and BLAST:

* Starting with a disease, syndrome, or process, identify the genes/proteins involved
* Starting with an organism and a protein, find the protein sequence and gene coding region
* Starting with a sequence, identify the gene/protein and source
* Compare two or more sequences and determine their relatedness

The workshop will cover selecting the proper tools for your question, navigating through the interlinked NCBI databases, and saving your results.
