With the explosion of sequence and structural information available to researchers, the field of bioinformatics is playing an increasingly large role in the study of fundamental biomedical problems. This information is generally available through the Internet and access to the World Wide Web. This unit provides an introduction to the internet–how it is organized, how you connect to it, using email and file transfer protocols, and finding your way around the Web.
