Student Staff Bio: Katee Wensinger


Continuing the series of Student Staff Bios, we have the fabulous Katee Wensinger! Katee is brand new to the library and is learning fast. She likes to hike in the Summer, ski in the Winter, play outside with her dog Bella and explore Denver’s downtown with her boyfriend. Her favorite part of working at the Health Sciences library so far is getting to know more about the services the Health Sciences Library offers. “There are so many cool services that I never knew about, but will definitely take advantage of now.”

5 Questions you can answer using Gene

The Gene resource from NCBI is a central hub for accessing nearly all molecular and literature resources for a particular gene. You can easily answer the most common questions and perform the most common tasks by starting in Gene.

In this webinar you will learn about the structure and contents of the Gene resource and how to use Gene to answer the following questions about a gene:

  • Where is the gene located (chromosome and position) in the genome assembly?
  • What are the Reference genomic, transcript and protein sequences for the gene?
  • What variations are present in the gene and are they associated with disease?
  • In what tissues and under what conditions is the gene expressed?
  • What are the equivalent genes (homologs) in other species?
