NCBI Minute: Important Changes Coming to NCBI Web Protocols

To comply with new government-wide security standards, all NCBI Web pages and API services will switch to the secure HTTPS protocol on September 30, 2016. If you access NCBI using a web browser you probably won't even notice the shift. If you access the NCBI service using other software or scripts, you may need to adjust your code to accommodate the change. Through the webinar you will learn how this change will affect your access to NCBI pages and services and what you need to do to have a smooth transition.
