New Release of pdb_extract Available Online and for Download
pdb_extract is a program that minimizes errors and saves time during the deposition process by extracting key details from the output files produced by many X-ray crystallographic and NMR applications. The program merges these data into macromolecular Crystallographic Information File (mmCIF) data files that can be used with ADIT for validation and deposition.
Version V3.10 of pdb_extract has been released, and provides:
- Support for several new versions of programs (including REFMAC version 5.5 and higher), for a total of 37 programs/packages with hundreds of different formats
- Improved extraction and parsing from programs (e.g., PHENIX version 1.4 and later, BUSTER-TNT version 2.8 & higher) and log files (MLPHARE)
- Support for multiple MTZ file conversion
Depositors can upload files into the pdb_extract webserver or download the latest workstation version at pdb-extract.rcsb.org. Complete details are available in the release notes and manual. Tutorials are also available for X-ray and NMR.
