NCBI Discovery Workshop

Washington University School of Medicine participated as a remote site for the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) Discovery Workshop held at the University of Michigan in October 2012. The workshop focused on a variety of NCBI resources and consisted of the following four sessions:

  1. Sequences, Genomes and Maps
  2. Proteins, Domains and Structures
  3. NCBI BLAST Services
  4. Human Variation and Disease Genes

Session descriptions, along with the video recordings (kindly provided by the University of Michigan’s Taubman Health Sciences Library), and associated slides and handouts are available HERE.

Visit the NCBI Educational Resources page for a variety of educational resources, including tutorials, problem sets, online tools, FAQs and documentation.
