Tutorials and Workshops

Tutorials are guided tours through the NMPDR site, designed to walk a new user through a typical workflow. Tutorials are most effective when you have them open in one window and work through the examples in another window. A pdf is available to download from each tutorial page if you prefer to work from a hard copy of the tutorial instructions.

Workshops are the presentations and documentation used at workshops presented by the NMPDR team. Please contact us (help at nmpdr.org) if you would like to schedule a workshop at your institution.

Tutorials

  • Find - How to find a gene or protein of interest based on keywords, how to limit a keyword search, how to search the sequence data directly with BLAST or Scan
  • View - How to compare your gene or protein to similar versions in other organisms on the Annotation Overview page.
  • Download from NCBI - How to successfully download sequence data for complete or draft genomes from NCBI Microbial Genomes.
  • RAST - How to upload a genome sequence, view the annotation, and compare the sequences and annotations of your new genome to others in the database.
  • MG-RAST - How to upload a genome sequence, view the annotation, and compare the sequences and annotations of your new genome to others in the database.

Workshops

RAST and MG-RAST workshops were held at Argonne National Laboratory in April and December of 2008. Here are some of the materials from those workshops. More will be added as they are updated and made accessible.

Notice to NMPDR Users - The NMPDR BRC contract has ended and bacterial data from NMPDR has been transferred to PATRIC (http://www.patricbrc.org), a new consolidated BRC for all NIAID category A-C priority pathogenic bacteria. NMPDR was a collaboration among researchers from the Computation Institute of the University of Chicago, the Fellowship for Interpretation of Genomes (FIG), Argonne National Laboratory, and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois. NMPDR is funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services, under Contract HHSN266200400042C.
