Paper Published on NextGen Archive


A new paper describes how the recently-announced NextGen Archive provides centralized access to integrated annotations and enriched structural information for PDB data:

The PDB NextGen archive provides sequence annotation from external resources such as UniProt, SCOP2 and Pfam in addition to the content provided in the structure model files in the PDB main archive. The inclusion of UniProtKB numbering facilitates effortless structural comparisons between experimental and predicted protein models. These PDBx/mmCIF files are directly compatible with various data visualization tools, simplifying the display of annotations on 3D structure views.
