An Introduction to PubChem for Life ScientistsThis workshop was offered virtually on November 17, 2022.
Workshop Duration: 2 hours
Content Difficulty: Beginner
This workshop is designed for beginners or people new to finding chemical data on the NCBI website.
Scientists and educators from many different fields need to find and understand chemical data to perform their work. As such, understanding PubChem, the world’s largest collection of freely accessible chemical information, is a powerful skill for researchers, educators, clinicians, and more. In this workshop, participants will have access to NCBI experts and be introduced to the functionality of the PubChem Database.
In this online, interactive workshop, we will learn:
- Best practices of searching in PubChem
- Where to find molecular and chemical safety information
- How to use the PubChem Sketcher to find information about your chemical structure
- How to find a possible inhibitor for your gene
Please note: This workshop is designed for life scientists without exhaustive training in chemistry. More advanced PubChem workshops will be available in the future.
