On October 15th, 2014, NCBI will have a Webinar entitled "An Introduction to NCBI's E-Utilities, an NCBI API." E-Utilities is a tool to assist programmers in accessing, searching and retrieving a wide variety of data form NCBI servers.

This presentation will introduce you to the Entrez Programming Utilities (E-Utilities), the public API for the NCBI Entrez system that includes 40 databases such as Pubmed, PMC, Gene, Genome, GEO and dbSNP. After covering the basic functions and URL syntax of the E-utilities, we will then demonstrate these functions using Entrez Direct, a set of UNIX command line programs that allow you to incorporate E-utility calls easily into simple shell scripts.
