The UC Davis Library is pleased to announce:

2013 NCBI Discovery Workshops @ UC Davis Library [Webinar Edition]

The workshops will focus on the following areas:

1. Sequences, Genomes, and Maps: December 17, 2013 from 12:30-2:30pm PT

2. Proteins, Domains, and Structures: December 18, 2013 from 12:30-2:30pm PT

3. NCBI BLAST Services: December 19, 2013 from 12:30-2:30pm PT

4. Human Variation and Disease Genes: December 20, 2013 from 12:30-2:30pm PT

To register:

You are welcome to register for one or more workshops, each emphasizing different sets of NCBI resources. Specific examples will be used to highlight important features of the resources and tools under study and to demonstrate how to accomplish common tasks. Electronic copies of detailed handouts for each session will provide step-by-step instructions and additional information about each example.

All workshops are taught by NCBI staff and will consist of 1.5 hours of instruction followed by a Q & A period.

Due to the US Government sequester, the workshop instructors will not be able to present in person at UC Davis, as in previous years. Instead, you are invited to attend all sessions via webinar, using your own computer or perhaps collaborating with your department or research group to view together.
