NCBI's Entrez tool for gene-centric information
Tutorial and training materials by OpenHelix
|Learn to use the Entrez Gene resource, a gene-centered collection of information from databases maintained by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) and from other sources. Genes with defined sequences, known map positions, and genes inferred from phenotypic information are included, and information is added to these records when it becomes available. Entrez Gene records are extensively annotated and linked to provide you with easy access to many types of related information, including literature, taxonomy, conserved domains, GEO Profiles, chemical compound and substance data and more.|
- basic and advanced searches, including complex Boolean strategies
- to understand the detailed gene reports provided
- how to navigate, understand and customize output displays
- additional features, such as options for saving searches, setting filters, and more
