National Institutes of Health subscribes to OpenHelix training portal
Date:4/19/2010

NIH scientists and staff can now efficiently and effectively learn to use bioinformatics and genomics resources with the extensive tutorial suite catalog from OpenHelix.

(PRWEB) April 19, 2010 -- The National Institutes of Health Library (www.nihlibrary.nih.gov) has purchased a subscription to OpenHelix (www.openhelix.com) giving NIH scientists and staff access to over 90 tutorial suites on bioinformatics and genomic resources.

With OpenHelix tutorials, NIH now offers their employees a quick and effective way to learn about the most powerful and popular genomics and bioinformatics databases and resources. These tutorials cover many types of resources including protein databases, bioinformatics analysis tools, model organism databases, SNP databases, comparative genomics, pathway and interaction resources and much more.

The online narrated tutorials, which run in just about any browser, can be viewed from beginning to end or navigated using chapters and forward and backward sliders. The approximately 60 minute tutorials highlight and explain the features and functionality needed to start using the resources effectively. The tutorial can be used by new users to introduce them to a resource, or by previous users to view new features and functionality, or simply as a reference tool to understand specific features.

In addition to the tutorial, users also have access to useful training materials including the animated PowerPoint slides used as a basis for the tutorial, suggested script for the slides, slide handouts, and exercises. This can save a tremendous amount of time and effort for teachers and professors creating classroom content.

"It is difficult, and certainly cost prohibitive, for research institutions themselves to create and provide training on the many critical genomic resources available.” said Scott Lathe, Chief Executive Officer of OpenHelix, “NIH uses the OpenHelix subscription to provide an efficient and effective training solution for their researchers.”
