METRO & NY/NJ-MLA Present Demystifying Molecular Biology taught by Colette Saccomanno PhD, MLSIS and Helen-Ann Brown Epstein MS, MLS, AHIP
Spend your time as a medical librarian fascinated and no longer confused. Get to know your way around DNA,RNA and ask every "-omic question" you were ever afraid to ask. You'll have a BLAST, and you won't even want to BLINK as a librarian colleague who also holds a PhD in Molecular Biology shares her knowledge and shows you how to unravel any helix with ease. With molecular biology concepts now clearer, approach the literature led by a librarian colleague expert searcher to interpret stories, compose background and foreground questions and use selected NCBI resources to find the answer.
The goals of the hands on class are to:
(1) demystify the basic concepts of Molecular Biology for the non-scientist librarian
(2) guide the integration of that knowledge into more efficient and effective use of NCBI resources.
(3) emphasis on cultivating an appreciation of how important this basic information is to the future of medical practice and the implementation of Precision/Personalized Medicine
