Trial OpenHelix Bioinformatics and Genomics Training

Trial available until September 6th

In our current genomics era, it is ever more critical to access and analyze the vast amounts of data available to the researcher and scientist. However, it is a daunting task to learn how to use the databases and tools that are used to store and analyze genomics and genomics related data.

To help faculty, staff and students quickly learn to use these resources, OpenHelix (www.openhelix.com) has created over 100 tutorial suites on critical databases and tools.

University of Cincinnati has the opportunity to evaluate the OpenHelix bioinformatics and genomics tutorial suites.

The tutorial suites include an introductory online narrated tutorials, which run in just about any browser, can be viewed from beginning to end or navigated using chapters and forward and backward sliders.

In addition to the tutorials, you also receive useful training materials including the animated PowerPoint slides used as a basis for the tutorial, suggested script for the slides, slide handouts, and exercises. You can save time and effort by using these to create classroom content. Check out the quick reference card available for more information!
