This workshop concluded on July 27, 2023. The workshop materials are available here.

For 35 years, NCBI has collected a vast amount of sequence information including from a diverse array of organisms, including viruses, bacteria and fungi. With all of the databases and tools available at NCBI, it is sometimes daunting to know where to start looking to find helpful data for a research project. This workshop is designed to provide guided, hands-on experience with the NCBI website to find biosequence-based information to support viral, bacterial or fungal pathogen research.

In this workshop you will learn how to:

    • Identify pathogens based on isolate sequences.
    • Discover available NCBI information for a particular or closely-related organism.
    • View and download genomic sequences and annotation data.
    • Access specialty resources including the Pathogen Detection Project and NCBI Virus.

Note:  This workshop was designed for both student researchers and their supportive educators and mentors. We expect that participants in this workshop will already have familiarity with basic molecular biology concepts.
