The NCBI homepage now has six prominent buttons on it: Submit, Download, Learn, Develop, Analyze, and Research. Each of these buttons leads to an action page devoted to a particular set of services.
We’ve also included a blue feedback button on the left side of the Download, Learn, Develop and Analyze pages so that you can tell us what you think.
On the new action pages, you’ll also see 6 categories in the header: Literature, Health, Genomes, Genes, Proteins and Chemicals. These category pages highlight useful databases, tools and resources for each of the topics, all in one place. If you follow us on LinkedIn, these categories will be familiar to you – we’ve used them as Showcase Pages to group our news stories and announcements by topic.
These action pages will allow you to easily access the pages and resources you need to complete tasks. Try to use them to:
- find information about the Entrez API,
- find an upcoming NCBI webinar,
- find an NCBI tool that designs PCR primers,
and much more. Let us know what you think! We look forward to hearing your comments.
