The RCSB Protein Data Bank: views of structural biology for basic and applied research and education.
Bottom Line: Herein, we describe recently introduced data annotations including integration with external biological resources, such as gene and drug databases, new visualization tools and improved support for the mobile web.We also describe access to data files, web services and open access software components to enable software developers to more effectively mine the PDB archive and related annotations.Our efforts are aimed at expanding the role of 3D structure in understanding biology and medicine.

Mentions: To enable better integration between the growing corpus of genomic data and 3D information in the PDB, we implemented a pipeline that maps protein structure data onto the human genome. We can now link most human PDB entries to their corresponding genes. To visualize this mapping, we created Gene View to support browsing of the human genome with PDB data mapped onto corresponding genomic positions. These data can be correlated with other genomic annotations, such as gene structure prediction, DNA repeats or sequence conservation, across ∼50 vertebrate genomes. Our graphical view is built atop the BioDalliance genome browser (49). Users can ‘mouse’ through the region around a human gene, as shown in the Gene View (Figure 6), PDB ID 2W72 chain A (50), PDB ID 1C7C chain A (51).
