Tutorials and lecture materials from NCBI and NHGRI

I am constantly surprised by the amount of great instructional material available in topics related to genomics and bioinformatics. It is unfortunate that there isn't a "master list" somewhere of all of the instructional available from NIH-related efforts (hint hint). Until that happens, I'll try to share resources as I find them. Here are some great resources from the National Center for Biotechnology Information and also from the National Human Genome Research Institute.


All training and tutorials resources on the NCBI pages are conveniently available on a single page. Some of the most helpful resources have been listed below.  Do take a few minutes to visit the NCBI Education Page, where they provide How-To guides, links to classes and workshops from NCBI, lists of tutorials and problem sets, and tons of great documentation.

The NCBI/NLM YouTube Channel offers some fantastic short videos on everything from BLAST Expect values to the Genome Workbench to using MyNCBI for all sorts of good things.


NHGRI collects lecture materials from events and courses and makes them available online - which offers a fantastic way to hear about cutting-edge research topics from the experts in the field. Lectures are often made available on NHGRI's YouTube channel, A few of the sessions include:

...and of course you should check out the fantastic education materials available from NHGRI, too.
