The PDB has released an alpha version of the OpenMMS Toolkit, a suite of
software tools that implement the Corba standard (OMG specification
dtc/2001-04-06). The Corba specification provides a standard application
programming interface (API) that allows remote programs direct access to
the detailed experimental and macromolecular data available in the PDB.
More information about the PDB and Corba is available at
The OpenMMS Toolkit was developed to facilitate the use of macromolecular
structure data by various scientific applications. In addition to a reference
implementation that demonstrates the functionality of the OMG Corba specifications,
the toolkit also contains software for parsing data files and for creating and loading
a relational database.
Compiled and source-only distributions of OpenMMS are available at
