New PDB Mirror Site in Brazil

February 22, 2000 -- The Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais/CENAPAD in Brazil has established a new RCSB PDB mirror site. Following the addition of this new mirror site, there are seven RCSB PDB sites available worldwide. The RCSB's priority when establishing new mirror sites is to ensure that there is good global coverage to facilitate access to PDB data.

The RCSB PDB mirrors now span four continents with sites at SDSC, Rutgers University, NIST, the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Center in the United Kingdom, the National University of Singapore, Osaka University in Japan, and the Brazil site.
