NCBI Homepage Update: Action Buttons and Category Pages

NCBI Homepage Update: Action Buttons and Category Pages. NLM Tech Bull. 2015 Mar-Apr;(403):b6.

2015 March 12 [posted]
[Editor's Note: This is a reprint of an announcement published on the NCBI Announcements and Updates List, an e-mail announcement list available from the National Center for Biotechnology Information. To subscribe to this list, please see the ncbi-announce -- NCBI announcements and updates page.]

The NCBI homepage now has 6 new buttons on it:

  • Submit
  • Download
  • Learn
  • Develop
  • Analyze
  • Research

Each of these leads to an action page devoted to a particular set of services. These action pages will allow you to easily access the pages and resources you need to complete tasks. For instance, you can:

  • Find information about the Entrez API,
  • Find an upcoming NCBI webinar,
  • Find an NCBI tool that designs PCR primers, and much more.

On the new action pages, you'll also see 6 categories in the header:

  • Literature
  • Health
  • Genomes
  • Genes
  • Proteins
  • Chemicals

These category pages highlight useful databases, tools and resources for each of the topics all in one place. If you follow us on LinkedIn, these categories will be familiar to you - we've used them as showcase pages to group our news stories and announcements by topic.

We've also included a blue Feedback button on the left side of the Download, Learn, Develop, and Analyze pages so that you can tell us what you think. We look forward to hearing your comments. Stay tuned to NCBI News and to our blog, NCBI Insights, for more information about the new homepage.
