The class will be held in the Bioscience Library Seminar Room, 2103 VLSB.
Here is their description:
EndNoteŽ is a widely-used, powerful reference management tool. This hands-on workshop taught by Donna Kirking of Researchsoft will include an overview of the latest EndNote features. You will learn to:
* Organize references

* Format bibliographies in hundreds of styles
* Import references from databases
Our seminar room is equipped with 12 iMacs. If you already have EndNote installed on your laptop, you can work on your own computer. No sign-up is needed.
The Comparative Toxicogenomics Database (CTD) elucidates molecular mechanisms by which environmental chemicals affect human disease. It CTD includes manually curated data describing cross-species chemical?gene/protein interactions and chemical? and gene?disease relationships to illuminate molecular mechanisms underlying variable susceptibility and environmentally influenced diseases.
Search the CTD by/for:
Here is a sample record for benzene.
As stated in the press release; the CTD "is an attempt to map the complex ways in which chemicals are related to diseases." CTD is now one of the databases in TOXNET, a cluster of databases covering information on toxicology, hazardous chemicals, environmental health, and other related areas. You can also search the CTD from the Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory site, CTD was developed at the MDIBL.

Publish in an Open Access Journal; We Will Help Pay Author Fees
The University strives both to maximize the benefits of Berkeley's research for the scholarly community and to advance knowledge in ways that improve the quality of life in local and global communities. The Berkeley Research Impact Initiative (BRII) supports faculty members, post-docs, and graduate students who want to make their journal articles free to all readers immediately upon publication.
Details available at the BRII web site.
