Mercer University School of Medicine will be hosting a free training course for life sciences educators, scientists and researchers interested in searching molecular sequence databases. Instructors from the National Center for Biotechnology Information at the National Library of Medicine will be in Macon to teach "A Field Guide to GenBank and NCBI Molecular Biology Resources." The course consists of a three-hour lecture the morning of Thursday, October 27, and a two-hour computer workshop.
