About this guide

This workshop covers three basic approaches to searching for sequence data and related literature in NCBI Databases:

1.  Navigating across databases -- PubMed is the most common entry point.

2.  Finding sequences in individual databases -- Gene is a good place to start for many questions.

3.  BLAST sequence similarity searching -- Algorithm used to identify similar sequences.
