Watch the Crash Course: Understanding PDBx/mmCIF
Visit PDB-101 to learn the basics of PDBx/mmCIF data dictionary and file format that underpin archiving of more than 200,000 experimentally determined 3D biostructures in the PDB. Learn from the RCSB PDB Biocuration Team about software tools for generating and working with PDBx/mmCIF files, and programmatic access for harvesting PDB data.
These videos` will be of interest to professionals and graduate students (structural biology, cheminformatics & computational chemistry, bioinformatics & computational biology) interested in learning about strategies to take full advantage of PDB data.
- Introduction and course objectives
- PDBx/mmCIF format - Not your parents’ legacy PDB format
- PDBx/mmCIF data files - Lifting the lid off the black box
- Programmatic data access and analysis using PDBx/mmCIF files<
Development and management of the PDBx/mmCIF data dictionary is a collaborative effort involving RCSB PDB, Worldwide Protein Data Bank (wwPDB) partners, and members of the wwPDB PDBx/mmCIF Working Group.
