This training will provide a hands-on experience, using examples that will highlight the use of different NCBI resources, for biomedical research. Participants will learn to use both browser based resources and programmatic resources. Basic and advanced usage of resources including Gene, Protein, Expression, Variation, Chemicals, Sequencing, Taxonomy, Literature, BLAST, SRA-Tools etc., would be covered.


The National Center For Biotechnology Information (NCBI) web portal is the alma mater for biomedical research data. NCBI hosts the popular data resources like PubMed, PubChem, GenBank, RefSeq, GEO, SRA and dozens of other important Biomedical Data resources that are in the forefront of human health research. Learning to efficiently use the NCBI resources would significantly help biomedical discovery.
