To register: http://tinyurl.com/NCBI-Workshops-UCD
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.
