Chemicals, Drugs and Genetics Oh My!: Searching PubMed and Beyond

This four-week specialized class will help improve your effectiveness in searching PubMed and related NLM and NIH databases for literature on chemicals, drugs and genetics. Topics include searching PubMed with Supplementary Concept Records (SCR) and Pharmacologic Actions (PA), using related databases for drug and chemical information (e.g. ClincalTrials.gov, TOXNET, and PubChem Compound), and locating genetic literature (e.g. NCBI Gene and Genetics Home Reference). This course assumes a strong working knowledge of PubMed.
