PDB staff members participated in several meetings this summer. We received excellent
feedback from those in attendance at these events, which will help to guide PDB's future
11th International Conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB; June
29-July 3, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia) - New query and reporting features of the re-engineered PDB site were demonstrated at PDB's exhibit and as part of a presentation on "The Re-engineered PDB" at this conference.
American Crystallographic Association's Annual Meeting (ACA; July 26-31, Northern Kentucky
Convention Center) - Desktop versions of various software programs were demonstrated the PDB
exhibit, and a standalone version of ADIT software was distributed at this meeting. Posters
were presented on "TargetDB: A Target Registration Database for Structural Genomics" and on
the Ligand Depot. A presentation on "PDB Data Assembly and Validation Tools" was part of the
Computational Methods session. The PDB Poster prize, which is described further in this
newsletter, made its debut at the ACA meeting.
17th Symposium of the Protein Society (July 27-29, Boston, MA) - A poster on the "New
Features of the Protein Data Bank" was presented at this symposium.
