69 - Integrating chemical and biological structural information

Gary Battle,, Jose Dana, Saqib Mir, Tom Oldfield, Sameer Velankar, Gerard Kleywegt. The European Bioinformatics Institute, The Protein Data Bank in Europe, Wellcome Trust Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambridge CB10 1SD, United Kingdom

The Protein Data Bank (PDB) is the single worldwide repository of 3D structures of biological macromolecules and includes over 14,000 distinct ligands bound to proteins or nucleic acids. These structures are central to our understanding of biochemical processes and define the link between chemistry and biological macromolecules.

The Protein Data Bank in Europe (PDBe; is a core resource at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI) and a founding member of the Worldwide Protein Data Bank (wwPDB; This talk will review ongoing efforts at the PDBe to provide consistent mappings between macromolecular structure data and important biological and chemical data resources at the EBI. We will also discuss freely available web tools for mining and analysing the wealth of structural information available in the PDB using familiar biological or chemical terminology and classifications.
