Online Tools for Cases

Biology WorkBench

Orientation to the Biology Workbench (pdf)
Biology Workbench

The Biology Workbench is a web-based tool for biologists. The Workbench allows biologists to search many popular protein and nucleic acid sequence databases. Database searching is integrated with access to a wide variety of analysis and modeling tools, all within a point and click interface that eliminates file format compatibility problems.



National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI)

NCBI investigators develop new methods for integrative, computer-based data analysis to mine massive and complex data sets. Once developed, these software tools may then be used by the research community to answer specific scientific questions.
