The tutorial offers tips on effectively and efficiently searching PubMed for drugs and chemicals. Nine brief modules with video demonstrations include guidance on substance-related Medical Subject Headings (MeSH), using the MeSH Database, effective searching with pharmacological action terms, converting special characters in systematic names, and using tags in searching.
