Computer Classes on Campus this Summer

Summer routines in the lab or office are often a bit less hectic, making it a great time to update and expand computer skills by taking some of the courses available through the CIT Computer Training Program. More than 85 subjects are taught, all offered without charge. Registration is easy — enroll via the Web at, by phone, or by sending or faxing in the form printed on the back of the program catalog.

The 1999 summer term runs through early September and includes a variety of classes ranging from 1-hour seminars to multi-session intensive courses. Several new courses added to this term reflect the diverse needs of NIH computer users.

Scientists can find help with GCG sequence and analysis:

  • Getting Started with GCG explains how to use GCG on the Helix system at NIH and describes SeqWeb and SeqLab.
  • Advance Sequence Analysis Using the Wisconsin Package lets experienced users explore the variety of tools to manipulate and analyze nucleotide and protein sequences.

Web developers can expand with new powerful tools:

  • Using FrontPage to Generate Web Content
  • Filemaker Pro on the Web — Real World Examples
  • Active Server Pages Workshop

Network users can follow emerging technology:

  • Network Sniffer Workshop by April Merryman follows up her popular introductory class from the spring term.
  • Another seminar examines videocasting on the NIH network and looks at new ways of delivering voice, data and video over a single pipe.

PC Users can get a jump on the latest from Microsoft:

  • Incorporating Outlook 2000 into Daily Operations
  • Advanced Word Techniques for Building Large Documents is intended for proficient users of MS Word and is geared to Word 2000.
