The Bioinformatics team at the Wright Center for Clinical and Translational Research and VCU Libraries are hosting a 5-day series of workshops focused on introducing attendees to popular genomic databases.  The intent of this workshop is to teach participants about the types of data stored in each database and how to access and navigate them. 

Each day will consist of a 1 hour lecture/database demo followed by a 1 hour hands-on session in which attendees will complete a basic and (optionally) advanced assignment.


Certificate of Completion

A Certificate of Completion will be awarded to participants who register for and attend at least 4 of the 5 sessions, and complete the workshop assignments and a short survey after the course has concluded. Certificates will be emailed in the weeks after the workshop.
