Learn to use Entrez the main search engine for the National Center for Biotechnology Information, NCBI. An understanding of the features of Entrez will improve all of your searches at the NCBI site--whether you seek genes, genomes, proteins, literature, or any of the other extensive data collections at NCBI. This is because Entrez provides a variety of tools for searching and retrieving that are common to many of the NCBI databases. Here we will review and highlight the general features of many of the most important Entrez tools.
