NIST Creates HIV Protein Structure Database

NEW YORK, July 16 (GenomeWeb News) - The National Institute of Standards and Technology has established an online database of AIDS-related protein structures, NIST said yesterday.


The HIV Structural Reference Database, developed in collaboration with the National Cancer Institute, will receive, annotate, archive, and distribute structural data for HIV proteins and molecules that inhibit them.


The new database, which can be accessed here, contains data from the published literature and previously unpublished data from industrial and other laboratories.
