SHARING OPTIONS:

BELLEVUE, Wash.OpenHelix has partnered with the Research Collaboratory for Structural Biology 's Protein Data Bank (PDB) to provide training and outreach programs for the PDB's resources, which support scientific research and education about biomolecular structures.  
 
More specifically, the PDB bioinformatics resource provides tools and resources for studying macromolecules, and it serves as a repository for three-dimensional biological structures of proteins, nucleic acids and complex assemblies. In addition, PDB curates and annotates protein data, and it presents search, display and visualization methods to access that data.  
 
The new training tools developed with OpenHelix include an online narrated tutorial that demonstrates basic and advanced searches and how to generate reports, different options for exploring individual structures, and other resources and tools. The partnership also has developed an hour-long tutorial, training materials including a slide display, and related exercises.  
 
PDB Director Helen Berman said in a statement that the resource materials "can introduce new users to the RCSB PDB and serve as a quick reference for our experts."
 
The PDB resource is managed by member institutions including Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey; the San Diego Supercomputer Center; and the Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of California, San Diego.
