Tip of the Week: NCBI Genome Workbench

Today’s tip is from NCBI. Specifically, NCBI’s Genome Workbench. The workbench is

…an integrated application for viewing and analyzing sequence data. With Genome Workbench, you can view data in publically available sequence databases at NCBI, and mix this data with your own private data.

It’s a useful program and they have a great set of videos to introduce you to the workbench’s functions and features. The video embedded here is the introduction, but they also have several additional videos including how to load a genome into the workbench, phylogenies and others. Check it out.
