Outline of R&D

We construct and maintain the centralized PDB (Protein Data Bank) archive of biological macromolecular structures and the BMRB (BioMagResBank) archive for NMR experimental information as PDBj (PDB Japan) collaborating with the RCSB, the BMRB in USA and the PDBe in EU. In addition, we provide several derived databases and web services based on the data-integration technology, and construct the base of the structural life science by integrating with other life science databases. We also instruct users and depositors for usages of PDB and BMRB data and services, and we bring up the expert annotators.
