Initiative shares protein structure info

The six-year-old Protein Structure Initiative is creating an information hub that will share structural information on proteins. The initiative has focused on determining the 3-dimensional shape of proteins. "The first five years of the PSI were devoted to developing methods, technologies, and pipelines to speed the structure production process and reduce its cost," says NIGMS director Jeremy M. Berg, Ph.D. "The products of these efforts have been available to the scientific community, but the new resources should dramatically enhance accessibility." Release
