The National Center for Biotechnology Information presents an enhanced,
two-day version of the popular Field Guide course. This expanded course
provides more detailed coverage of NCBI molecular databases and tools,
especially the Entrez system and NCBI BLAST (Web, standalone and client
versions). Special emphases of the course are genomic information and
molecular structures. The hands-on practical portion is more extensive and
includes the "Exploring 3D Molecular Structures" and "Identification of
Disease Genes" NCBI course materials.
The course is free but registration is required. To register, and for more
information, see the URL given above. This special edition course is limited
to the first 40 applicants. Participants must provide their own
network-ready laptop pre-configured or configurable for Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol (DHCP) and have a standard Web browser installed.
NCBI software (Cn3D, BLAST and Netblast) and databases will be installed on
the laptops during the course.
Participants are responsible for their own accommodations. There are a
number of hotels in Bethesda and Rockville that are convenient to the NIH
