Announcing: NCBI Course Preference Survey

A survey for UIUC researchers working in fields related to molecular biology, bioinformatics, biotechnology, genomics, etc.

The UIUC Library's Biotechnology Information Center and the UIUC Roy J. Carver Biotechnology Center have created a short survey to gauge your interest attending NCBI-related training sessions. A message about registering for the courses will be sent at a later time.

Based on the results of the survey, we will invite NCBI User Services trainers to present 3-5 of their eleven mini-courses and, possibly, their structure course at UIUC this Fall or Spring.

The mini-courses are each 2.5 hours in length. The structure course is up to 5 hours in length. All classes have lecture and hands-on components.

There will be no fee to attend the course(s).

Before you login to take the survey, please visit the NCBI website to learn more about the content of the eleven NCBI mini-courses and the NCBI structure course:
Mini-courses
(In the survey you will be asked to select up to 4 mini-courses that you'd be interested in attending; we'll arrange for the highest vote-getters to be presented at UIUC)

Log in to take the survey (you will need your netID and password):

The survey will remain open until August 18th.

This note was sent to several academic groups on campus, as well as to those who took the NCBI course last September. Please feel free to tell your colleagues about it, if you didn't get one of the email messages. (And let me know if you'd like to be put on my mailing list!)
