Attend virtually or in person. The workshops will be held from Tuesday, November 8, to Thursday, November 10, in the Kresge Auditorium at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. Each workshop will be three hours long and will be facilitated by NCBI experts and trainers.

Workshop topics include the following.
