This session provides an overview of the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) databases that contain information on gene variations. Learn how to search for short genetic variations, genome structural variation studies, genotype/phenotype interaction studies and human variations of clinical significance. This class is hands-on and free for UI students and affiliates. There will be time for questions at the end.
Our next session is:
Thursday, April 10, 3-4 pm
Location: Hardin Library for the Health Sciences, Information Commons Classroom EAST
