New mmCIF Resources Page

The PDB has compiled a list of mmCIF (macromolecular Crystallographic Information File) resources at http://pdb.rutgers.edu/mmcif/. The mmCIF dictionary and a set of dictionary extensions are used by the PDB team for all aspects of data processing. The mmCIF resources page provides links to articles, data dictionaries, format correspondences, the RCSB's response to the OMG RFP for a CORBA API for Macromolecular Structure, and tutorials. This page also provides links to various software programs, including Star CIF Parser, a new program developed by the PDB.
