The reengineered RCSB PDB Web site


The Protein Data Bank (http://www.pdb.org/, PDB) of the
Research Collaboratory for Structural Bioinformatics (RCSB) has been
reengineering the current RCSB PDB Web site and database.
The reengineered site is built on the improved primary data in the curated
mmCIF and XML files (see http://www.rcsb.org/pdb/uniformity/ ).

Improvements of the reengineered RCSB PDB include:

1) More accurate search results due to improved data in mmCIF and XML
2) Better navigation and search tools for both structures and Web site
3) Browsing of structures according to various classifications and
4) Integrated searching of PubMed abstracts
5) More detailed reports with additional experimental details
6) New visualization options
7) Data access through Web services
8) The ability to run the entire Web site and database on a laptop

All welcome.
