NIH Biosketch & Federal Public Access Policies
4/20/2015 from 2:30pm to 3:30pm, HSL - 307
This session will cover the NIH and AHRQ Public Access Policies and their compliance requirements, including a hands-on tour of the bibliography management and compliance monitoring functions in My NCBI. This session will also introduce the new NIH Biographical Sketch format requirements effective for NIH and AHRQ grant applications submitted on or after May 25, 2015. This class will include a walk through of the logistical steps in My NCBI for 1) NIH/AHRQ Policy compliance and 2) preparing a bibliography with a public link for addition to the new Biosketch. Participants will have the opportunity to login and follow along with their own My NCBI accounts. Attendees wishing to participate in the hands-on walk through will need to complete the steps below that apply to them: 1. Create a My NCBI account (if you do not have one already) a. If you already have an eRA Commons account, sign in using your eRA Commons information b. If you do not have an eRA Commons account, you can either register for a new NCBI account, or you can sign in with your ONYEN and password using the 3rd party sign in option. 2. Link existing accounts (if you have both a MyNCBI account and an eRA Commons account) 3. Assign/accept delegate status (if you are acting as a delegate or plan to have someone act as a delegate for you) For instructions on the steps, consult the My NCBI set up information in the HSL NIH compliance guide: http://guides.lib.unc.edu/compliance/myncbisetup The target audiences for this session include NIH- or AHRQ-funded investigators, including trainees, and research staff serving as delegates for investigators.

Webcast: Diversity of Data Management: Practical Approaches for Health Sciences Librarianship
4/22/2015 from 2:00am to 3:30am, HSL - 227
This Medical Library Association webcast is designed to provide health sciences librarians with an introduction to data management, including use of data in the research landscape and the current climate around data management in biomedical research. Three librarians working with data management at their institutions will present case studies and examples of products and services they have implemented, and provide strategies and success stories about what has worked to get data management services up and running at their libraries. Speakers include Lisa Federer, National Institutes of Health Library; Kevin Read, New York University Health Sciences Library; and Jacqueline Wirz, Oregon Health & Science University.
20 seats available.

Navigating NCBI Molecular Data Using the Integrated Entrez System and BLAST (via webinar)
5/5/2015 from 9:00am to 11:30am, HSL - 307

This workshop provides an introduction to the NCBI molecular databases and how to access the data using the Entrez text-based search system and BLAST sequence similarity search tool. You will learn the varied types of available molecular data, and how to find and display sequence, variation, genome information using organism sources (Taxonomy), data sources (Bioproject) and emphasizing the central role of the gene as an organizing concept to navigate across the integrated databases (Gene, Nucleotide, Protein, dbSNP and other resources).

Participants will attend this workshop via webinar hosted in the HSL 307 classroom.

Gene Expression Resources at the NCBI (via webinar)
5/5/2015 from 1:00pm to 3:30pm, HSL - 307

In this workshop, you will find, display and analyze microarray and sequence-based expression data that are stored in the Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO), Sequence Read Archive (SRA), UniGene, and Epigenomics databases to investigate the potential for expression of transcript splice variants and examine the levels of expression under varied experimental conditions as well as in different tissues and disease states. You will analyze Microarray data the on-demand GEO2R tool and will explore the precomputed transcript analyses that are displayed on the UniGene and GEO Profiles pages. You will explore genome-aligned RNA-Seq data through the Gene database's sequence viewer displays and analyze raw RNA-Seq reads in the SRA database using NCBI's SRA-BLAST service.

Participants will attend this workshop via webinar hosted in the HSL 307 classroom.

Basic RefWorks
5/5/2015 from 2:00pm to 3:00pm, HSL - 329
The Basic RefWorks class will cover the basic features of RefWorks. We will focus on accessing RefWorks, importing citations from PubMed, inserting your citations into your documents, and creating bibliography lists. This class is structured for new to beginning users.
13 seats available.


Human Variation and Medical Genetics Resources at the NCBI (via webinar)
5/6/2015 from 9:00am to 11:30am, HSL - 307

In this workshop, you will learn to use and access resources associated with human sequence variations and phenotypes associated with specific human genes and phenotypes. The workshop will emphasize the Gene, MedGen and ClinVar resources to search by gene, phenotype and and variant respectively. You will learn how to map variation from dbSNP and dbVAR onto genes, transcripts, proteins, and genomic regions and how to find genetic tests in GTR. You will also gain experience using additional tools and viewers including PheGenI, a browser for genotype associations and the new Variation Viewer the 1000 Genomes Browser, which provide a useful ways to search for, map and browse variants as well as upload and download data in genomic context.

Participants will attend this workshop via webinar hosted in the HSL 307 classroom.

NCBI Genomes, Assemblies and Annotation Products: Microbiome to Human (via webinar)
5/6/2015 from 1:00pm to 3:30pm, HSL - 307

In this workshop, you will learn how NCBI processes genome-level data and produces annotation through the prokaryotic and eukaryotic genome annotation pipelines. You will find, browse, and download genome-level data for your organism of interest and for environmental and organismal metagenomes using the Genome, BioProject and Assembly resources. In addition to assembled and annotated data, you will retrieve and download draft whole genome shotgun and read-level next-gen sequencing data from the Nucleotide and Sequence Read Archive (SRA) databases. You will access results of precomputed analyses of genomes, as well as perform your own analyses of assembled and unassembled genomic data using NCBI's genome BLAST and SRA-BLAST services.

Participants will attend this workshop via webinar hosted in the HSL 307 classroom.
