Location: Bioscience Library Training Room, 2101 VLSB
Description: 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.
