NCBI provides a wealth of tools, resources, and learning materials to promote "...finding new approaches to deal with the volume and complexity of data and to provide researchers with better access to analysis and computing tools to advance understanding of our genetic legacy and its role in health and disease."
Key Resources in addition to PubMed include:
Gene - data, information, and literature for known and predicted genes
Protein - sequences of protein, mRNA
Structure - 3D structures database of macromolecules, with multiple tools
Nucleotide - a collection of nucleotide sequences from several sources within and outside of NCBI databases
All current Virginia Tech students, faculty, and staff, regardless of your location, may request through ILLiad for materials:
We ship requests via UPS to users outside the immediate Blacksburg area (Montgomery, Giles and Pulaski counties).
Articles, book chapters, and many technical papers are delivered in PDF format to your ILLiad account. Occasionally, due to copyright restrictions, a paper copy of an article or standard are sent to the mailing address listed on your account.
