Learn about bioinformatics, the data science of biology!

The Network of the National Library of Medicine is pleased to open registration for the tenth cohort of Bioinformatics and Biology Essentials for Librarians: Databases, Tools, and Clinical Applications.

This 14-week, 30 credit hour, self-paced online class reviews basic biology concepts and provides hands-on experience with National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) molecular biology databases.
