Updates of mmCIF Files on the RCSB PDB FTP Site

As previously announced, the update of September 2, 2003 included the replacement of all mmCIF files in the RCSB PDB FTP archives with the remediated mmCIF files. Due to our ongoing data curation efforts, occasional weekly updates will include the replacement of large numbers of mmCIF files. We have decided to reserve the first Tuesday of each month for these potential bulk mmCIF updates. Such updates should not be required every month. If you would like to be added to a list of FTP users who will receive individual e-mail notifications prior to each bulk update, please send your request to info@rcsb.org.
