“An Introduction to Accessing NCBI Resources on the Command Line using EDirect for Biologists”
This workshop is for biological researchers who would like to learn to use the command line for searching and fetching NCBI data. In this workshop, we will begin with an introduction to working in a command line environment and then show you how to use the EDirect suite to access data programmatically from several NCBI databases. You do not need to have had prior experience with the command line, but we do recommend that you have some familiarity with NCBI databases get the most of this workshop.
