The CIT Computer Training Program has begun its spring semester. In order to meet the needs of a diverse scientific community, it offers sessions
dealing with Image Processing I & II, Microarray Data, AFNI, MIPAV, “Effective Utilization
of the Biowulf Cluster for Bioinformatics,”
“Bioinformatics Resources for Functional Categorization and Splice Variation Analysis,” “Mathematica 6,” SPSS topics and many more.
In addition to scientific topics, extramural staff will find a series of grants courses, including a new topic—“Grants Management Spreadsheet.”
This seminar will cover the Grants Management Standardized Categorical Excel Spreadsheet and its use. The always popular,
“Understanding the Grants Process,” QVR (Introduction, Intermediate, and Advanced) and QVR Training Profile sessions explain the workings of the system here at NIH. Sessions
in ECB Data Administration (Basic and Advanced) and “ECB Early Concurrence Workshop”
round out the sessions for grants.
NIH has a diverse user community, so CIT offerings cover many areas. Come see what all the hype is about in Microsoft Office 2007 and Windows Vista. Two new offerings are “Office 2007–What’s New” and “Getting to Know Windows
Vista.” In addition, topics to be given this term include “Basic PC Skills for NIH,” “Demystifying
the Mac,” and “Microsoft Visio Professional
2003 Introduction.” There are also sessions
of returning favorites including Excel and “BlackBerry Tips and Tricks.”
You can obtain full course information, register
for spring 2008 classes, join the CIT Training
mailing list and check out your transcript or current application status at training.cit.nih.gov. CIT also welcomes the expertise of those willing to teach courses in emerging fields of interest.
Most CIT training courses are free to NIH staff. While employees get first priority for classes, contractors are welcome to attend when space is available, the class is related to their work and they have approval from their NIH supervisor.
