Structural Bioinformatics Book Includes Chapters on the PDB

The recently published book, Structural Bioinformatics, includes several chapters about the PDB, which describe its history, function, development, and future goals, as well as the different data formats and protocols used to represent PDB structures:

The PDB Team (2003). The Protein Data Bank. Structural Bioinformatics. P. E. Bourne and H. Weissig. Hoboken, NJ, John Wiley & Sons, Inc. pp. 181-198.

Westbrook, J and Fitzgerald, PM (2003). The PDB format, mmCIF formats and other data formats. Structural Bioinformatics. P. E. Bourne and H. Weissig. Hoboken, NJ, John Wiley & Sons, Inc. pp. 161-179.

Structural Bioinformatics facilitates an understanding of the theories, algorithms, resources, and tools that are used to study biomacromolecular structures such as those included in the PDB. The topics covered -- including proteins, DNA, RNA, carbohydrates, and complex structures -- offer the reader a better understanding of biological function.

Structural Bioinformatics. P. E. Bourne and H. Weissig. Hoboken, NJ, John Wiley & Sons, Inc. (2003). ISBN: 0-471-20199-5
