5 Questions You Can Answer Using the NCBI Nucleotide Database
The Nucleotide database from NCBI contains nucleotide sequences from humans, model organisms, and a wide variety of other organisms. The database contains original data submitted by scientists from around the world as well as NCBI-curated reference sequences.
In this webinar, you will learn about the Nucleotide database and how to use it to answer the following questions:
• How do I find a nucleotide sequence for a specific gene or specific organism?
• How do I find complete genomic sequences?
• What is the coding region of a sequence?
• What genes have been identified in a particular sequence?
• How do I extract sequence data, for use at my institution?
A basic familiarity with genetics vocabulary will be helpful in understanding this Webinar. For a review, see The New Genetics (https://publications.nigms.nih.gov/thenewgenetics/), an educational booklet by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS).
