New My NCBI Accounts and E-mail Addresses
In the near future, registering for a My NCBI account will require an e-mail address. This modification will provide a more secure site for features such as reassigning forgotten passwords. Existing accounts will not be affected by this change. In lieu of registering for a new account, users may opt to sign in via a partner organization, e.g., Google.
