Release of New Deposition Tool at BMRB

BioMagResBank (BMRB) and RCSB PDB have jointly released a new ADIT-NMR deposition tool, which is available from the BMRB website (www.bmrb.wisc.edu). The current ADIT-NMR release provides the biological NMR community with a deposition interface for submitting a wide variety of quantitative experimental results from NMR spectroscopic studies of biological macromolecules to BMRB. The interface will be familiar to those who have submitted atomic coordinates and NMR constraints to the PDB.

ADIT-NMR has been developed as a collaborative project between the RCSB members PDB and BMRB. Through the PDB/BMRB collaboration, the ADIT-NMR tool will soon become a one-stop site for the deposition of all NMR derived data including atomic coordinates and constraints. The tool combines the BMRB dictionary for NMR experimental results with the software platform created by the RCSB PDB for the ADIT deposition system to create an easy to use interface for submitting NMR spectral parameters (chemical shifts, J-coupling constants, residual dipolar couplings, etc.), relaxation parameters, hydrogen exchange and pKa data to the BMRB. All members of the biological NMR community are encouraged to make use of ADITNMR in depositing their data at the BMRB and the RCSB PDB.

BMRB is the publicly accessible depository for NMR results from peptides, proteins, and nucleic acids recognized by the International Society of Magnetic Resonance and by the IUPACIUBMB- IUPAB Inter-Union Task Group on the Standardization of Data Bases of Protein and Nucleic Acid Structures Determined by NMR Spectroscopy.
