NCBI Discovery Workshop comes to Washington University

The Bernard Becker Medical Library at Washington University will be broadcasting the NCBI Discovery Workshop being held at the University of Michigan on October 11 and 12, 2012. The NCBI Discovery Workshop consists of four 2.5-hour hands-on sessions led by an NCBI scientist emphasizing different sets of NCBI resources. Each session uses specific examples to highlight important features of the resources and tools under study and to demonstrate how to accomplish common tasks. Becker Library will broadcast all four sessions in FLTC 214A&B.

The four sessions of the Discovery Workshop are:

9:00 – 11:30 Thursday October 11, 2012
1:00 – 3:30 Thursday October 11, 2012
9:00 – 11:30    Friday October 12, 2012
1:00 – 3:30   Friday October 12, 2012

Participants may attend all or any combination of these sessions. Each session is hands-on, and attendees will need to bring their own laptop to use during the sessions. The instructor will present a specific example using the live NCBI site followed by a period of individual practice on related problems. Detailed handouts for each session will provide step-by-step instructions and additional information about each example. Please register by clicking the session links above.
