The NIH will invest $5 million over five years to fund a new open-access database for molecular binding data, called the Community Structure-Activity Resource, says a post at Open Access News. Led by the University of Michigan, the Web-based resource will gather data from existing sources, like Binding MOAD and PDBbind, and work with pharma companies to create new data for enhanced computational modeling of predicted drug targets. In a similar project based on the wiki format, WikiProteins hopes to lure researchers to start annotating proteins for binding properties and function.
