Coffee Break is a resource at NCBI that combines reports on recent biomedical discoveries with use of NCBI tools. The result is an interactive tutorial that tells a biological story. Each report is based on a discovery reported in one or more articles from the recently published peer-reviewed literature. After a brief introduction that sets the work described into a broader context, the report focuses on how a molecular understanding can provide explanations of observed biology and lead to therapies for diseases.
