Health Sciences Library - Bioinformatics Resources & Training
Professional librarians at the UNC Health Sciences Library are available for one-on-one consultations, class or lab group lectures and demonstrations, and large group lectures. These consultations and classes generally focus on “database discovery” for targeted topics in genomics. Librarians identify, analyze, and give an overview of searching a variety of databases including PubMed, the NCBI Entrez suite, image databases, and clinical genomics tools. Course integrated instruction may also include the development of online tutorials, help pages, and/or assignments in addition to in-person lectures. The Library sponsors the ongoing Basic Bioinformatics Tools Forum series, which highlights primary resources in genetics, genomics, and proteomics research. Professional librarian consultation is also available for general reference services, customized literature searching, curriculum support, and electronic applications development.

Instructional materials included on this page are handouts from classes and Forum events, generic class assignments, and the Health Sciences Library Bioinformatics Blog for announcements of events and new resources for researchers, clinicians, and teaching faculty.
