Abstract The Protein Data Bank is a repository for the 3-D structural data of large biological molecules, such as proteins and nucleic acid. The PDB is a key resource in the areas of structural biology, structural genomics. Most major scientific journals, and some funding agencies, such as the NIH in the USA, now require scientists to submit their structure data to the PDB. If the contents of the PDB are thought of as primary data, there are hundreds of derived databases that categorize the data differently. For example, both SCOP and CATH categorize structure according to type of structure and assumed evolutionary relations; GO categorize structures based on genes. In this paper, we will describe how to overcome the limitations of PDB format.
