About the course

This is an introductory bioinformatics course for librarians run through the Moodle learning management system. It is designed for librarians who offer, or intend to offer, bioinformatics services; as well as for librarians who use bioinformatics information on a periodic or irregular basis to serve their patrons. Modules offer in-depth exploration of several NCBI databases, including Gene, Nucleotide, Protein, Structure, ClinVar, MedGen, and Gene Testing Registry, as well as guided instructions on using BLAST to identify genetic sequences. Course content is provided in the form of videos, hands-on exercises, readings, discussion posts, and open book quizzes. The course concludes with synthesis activities built upon actual reference questions received at the NCBI Help Desk, and the creation of a personal bioinformatics action plan.
