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.
