Education at NCBI

I’d like to point out the new NCBI Education page. There is a lot there that you might want to check out. NCBI will be, starting this fall, offering a series of two-day training courses they are calling Discovery Workshops. Two years ago they ended the NCBI Field Guide workshops, so this seems to be a welcome change.

There are also webinars. Our research suggests that webinars are not particularly popular, so I’m curious how these turn out. There are also ‘how-to’ guides, documentation, community, teacher resources. It’s quite a nice site with lots of things to check out.

I’d also like to point out the “recommended links” section. There are lots of links to additional educational resources like the Cold Spring Harbor’s Dolan DNA Learning Center and much more. And, incidentally :), a link to our own free tutorials which was very nice to see. You might want to check those out, we have over 10 including PDB, SGKB, UCSC Genome Browser, Galaxy, several model organism databases, and more.
