Last week, Matt Day announced Nature Publishing Group (NPG)‘s latest website: the Protein Structure Initiative (PSI)-Nature Structural Genomics Knowledgebase. Matt writes that the new addition to NPG’s existing collection of gateways and databases is “a collaboration with the Protein Structure Initiative, a large scale NIH-funded consortium to develop and apply high-throughput techniques for protein structure determination. They’ve been highly successful in generating new technologies that are available for others to use, and they’ve shown that structure determination work can be scaled up significantly.
Now that the site is launched, we’ll be providing monthly editorial updates that put developments in structural work into context for a wide range of biomedical researchers….The website is hosted at Rutgers University by the same team that hosts one of most significant and long-established databases, the Protein Data Bank”.
The Structural Genomics Knowledgebase (SGKB) offers researchers and others an easy way of keeping abreast of developments both by the PSI and more generally in the fields of structural genomics and structural biology. It is a regularly updated portal to research data and other resources from the PSI, with NPG providing a monthly update with synopses of important research advances, recent additions to a categorized library of research articles, as well as news and events in structural biology. You can register to receive a monthly email newsletter and subscribe to RSS feeds. NPG resources and publications relevant to the Protein Structure Initiative can be accessed here.
