PDB Focus: Annotating Data Around the World

From left to right: Yumiko Kengaku, Kyle Burkhardt (Rutgers-PDB), Reiko Igarashi, and Takashi Kosada at the Institute for Protein Research, Osaka University, Japan.
PDB data is processed by an international effort. ADIT deposition sites are located at the RCSB-Rutgers site (US) and at the Institute for Protein Research, Osaka University (Japan).

Structures deposited using ADIT are processed immediately and returned to the author. The files are fully processed and are released according to the release status provided by the author. Data are processed by staff from the RCSB (at Rutgers University in New Jersey and remotely at the Center for Complex Molecular Systems and Biomolecules in the Czech Republic) and from the Institute for Protein Research at Osaka University. The procedures used for processing these data are described in the PDB Data Processing and Annotation Procedures at http://www.rcsb.org/pdb/info.html#File_Formats_and_Standards.

Structures are also deposited using AutoDep at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI) in the United Kingdom. Data deposited using AutoDep are processed by the EBI.
