BLAST, Genome & Database Searching

You’ll not only look smarter, you’ll actually be smarter with these two classes! Miner Library and the University of Rochester’s CTSI team up to present two workshops through the Molecular Biology Information Support Service (MBISS);

Genome & Database Searching – an Introduction. Learn how to navigate through genomic databases, especially the more common databases (NCBI and KEGG) and the resources available there.

NCBI’s BLAST: An Introduction – learn how to use one of NCBI’s most common resources, BLAST (Basic Local Alignment Search Tool) for sequence alignment, homology, primer design, translation, taxonomy, etc.

Details: January 27 at 1:00 – 1:55 in the Nesbit Computer Classroon (G-7545)
