New Class: Animal Model and Model Organism Information Resources

Join us for a new class being offered by the NIH Library, Animal Model and Model Organism Information Resources. The class will be presented online via WebEx. Register through the links below:

Animal models are used to study the development and progression of diseases and to test new treatments. Model organisms are a subset of research organisms that serve as a proxy for understanding human biology. This introductory class will cover techniques on locating biomedical research articles, patents, NIH-funded research projects, genetic information, and print and electronic books related to animal models and model organisms. The class will also discuss the differences between animal models, research organisms, and model organisms, and will review requirements and resources for the NIH Model Organism Sharing Policy.
