9 Scopus citations


For many years the primary source of information about biological macromolecules was the Protein Data Bank, which is a repository of files containing coordinates of biological macromolecules. Now a variety of databases has been developed in which structures are organized in different ways. Currently available are databases that classify molecules according to their overall structural characteristics or particular features of structures, as well as databases that focus on particular protein families in depth.
