The RCSB Protein Data Bank (RCSB PDB) web site (http://www.pdb.org) has been redesigned to increase usability and to cater to a larger and more diverse user base. This article describes key enhancements and new features that fall into the following categories: (i) query and analysis tools for chemical structure searching, query refinement, tabulation and(More)
The Research Collaboratory for Structural Bioinformatics Protein Data Bank (RCSB PDB) develops tools and resources that provide a structural view of biology for research and education. The RCSB PDB web site (http://www.rcsb.org) uses the curated 3D macromolecular data contained in the PDB archive to offer unique methods to access, report and visualize data.(More)
The ongoing global effort of genome sequencing is making large scale comparative proteomic analysis an intriguing task. The Encyclopedia of Life (EOL; http://eol.sdsc.edu) project aims to provide current functional and structural annotations for all available proteomes, a computational challenge never seen before in biology. Using an integrative genome(More)
Using an integrative genome annotation pipeline (iGAP) for proteome-wide protein structure and functional domain assignment, we analyzed all the proteins of Arabidopsis thaliana. Three-dimensional structures at the level of the domain are assigned by fold recognition and threading based on a novel fold library that extends common domain classifications.(More)
BACKGROUND In the current era of scientific research, efficient communication of information is paramount. As such, the nature of scholarly and scientific communication is changing; cyberinfrastructure is now absolutely necessary and new media are allowing information and knowledge to be more interactive and immediate. One approach to making knowledge more(More)
We argue here, through the use of several examples from our work in support of structural biology, that the answer to the question posed by the title of this Perspective is a resounding yes. The discussion that follows is aimed primarily at those of the journal's readers who are biological resource developers and Web page developers interested in developing(More)
SUMMARY The Research Collaboratory for Structural Bioinformatics Protein Data Bank (RCSB PDB) resource provides tools for query, analysis and visualization of the 3D structures in the PDB archive. As the mobile Web is starting to surpass desktop and laptop usage, scientists and educators are beginning to integrate mobile devices into their research and(More)
The RCSB Protein Data Bank (RCSB PDB, www.pdb.org) is a key online resource for structural biology and related scientific disciplines. The website is used on average by 165,000 unique visitors per month, and more than 2000 other websites link to it. The amount and complexity of PDB data as well as the expectations on its usage are growing rapidly.(More)
Computer-based multimedia technology for distance learning and research has come of age--the price point is acceptable, domain experts using off-the-shelf software can prepare compelling materials, and the material can be efficiently delivered via the Internet to a large audience. While not presenting any new scientific results, this paper outlines(More)
