New Online Tutorials for NCBI resources BioSystems and DCODE
Date:2/23/2010

Comprehensive tutorials on the publicly available NCBI resources BioSystems and DCODE enable researchers to quickly and effectively use these invaluable resources.

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) February 23, 2010 -- OpenHelix today announced the availability of new tutorials on BioSystems and DCODE.

The NCBI BioSystems database provides easy access to information about all the molecules that interact in a biological system, including genes and proteins, small molecules in a pathway, as well as the genes biomarkers and drugs associated with diseases. DCODE is a public NCBI suite of tools for genomic alignments, multiple and pairwise sequence alignments, identifying gene regulatory elements and conserved transcription binding sites and more. These two tutorials, in conjunction with OpenHelix tutorials on OMIM, PubMed, Entrez Gene, BLAST, GEO and several others, give you a set of training resources that help you become efficient and effective using NCBI resources.

The tutorial suites, available through an annual OpenHelix subscription, contain an online, narrated, multimedia tutorial, which runs in just about any browser connected to the web, along with slides with full script, handouts and exercises. With the tutorials, researchers can quickly learn to effectively and efficiently use these resources. The scripts, handouts and other materials can also be used as a reference or for training others.

These tutorials will teach users:

BioSystems
   
*to perform basic searches and to understand your results
*to link out to a variety of related information in many different fields
*about Entrez tools that you can use to customize your searches and results*
*how to access and customize full-size pathway images
*some advanced searching techniques, including Boolean queries and batch searching

DCODE
   
*how to conduct whole genome alignments and identify ECRs
*how to create interactive conservation profiles and phylogenetic trees
*how to identify proximal and distant regulatory elements in desired sequences
*how to identify conserved transcription factor binding sites

To find out more about these and over 85 other tutorial suites visit the OpenHelix Catalog and OpenHelix. Or visit the OpenHelix Blog for up-to-date information on genomics and genomics resources.
