NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The National Institute of General Medical Sciences' Protein Structure Initiative project has partnered with the Nature Publishing Group to relaunch a free database of structural genomics information.
The Structural Genomics KnowledgeBase, hosted by Rutgers University, was originally launched in April. The revamped site includes editorial content contributed by the Nature Publishing Group that is expected to help researchers stay informed about developments in structural biology and structural genomics, NIGMS said.
The Structural Genomics KnowledgeBase will be “a continually updated gateway to research data and other sources” that are available through the PSI, NIGMS said.
The PSI centers, which were launched in 2000 by NIGMS, are focused on determining protein structures on a large scale. They have produced over 3,200 structures and published around 1,000 scientific papers so far.
