The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) presents NCBI QuickScripts, a one-day computer workshop on effectively using the NCBI Entrez Programming Utilities (E-utilities) within scripts to automate search and retrieval operations across the entire suite of Entrez databases. The course is a condensed version of NCBI PowerScripting, a 4-day course taught on the NIH campus in Bethesda, MD.
During the course, participants will learn how to do the following:
The course is intended for bioinformatics and information specialists who are interested in accessing NCBI data in an automated fashion. A working knowledge of NCBI resources and the Perl scripting language is required.
The course consists of two 3-3.5 hr sessions that will combine lecture, guided demonstrations, and time for independent work. During the course, participants will use a Perl module and a library of sample Perl scripts as starting materials with which to build E-utility applications.
