PDB Launches a Deposition Mirror Site at Osaka University

The PDB has established a deposition mirror site at the Institute for Protein Research at Osaka University in Osaka, Japan. The AutoDep Input Tool (ADIT) is now open to accept PDB depositions at http://pdbdep.protein.osaka-u.ac.jp/adit/ as well as at http://pdb.rutgers.edu/adit/. The Osaka ADIT mirror has all of the features available from the main ADIT server, including automatic ID assignment. ADIT was developed by the RCSB to provide a simple method for depositing structure data. Entries deposited at this site will be forwarded to the PDB for processing and inclusion in the database.
