research advances

Synopses of important developments in the field of structural biology and structural genomics, including advances from the Protein Structure Initiative. The featured articles and technical highlights are specially written for the Structural Biology Knowledgebase, while the research highlights are taken from NPG publications.

August 2010

  • Selected methods highlights from PSI-2 (2005-2010)

    • Introduction

      PSI SGKB Director Helen Berman introduces the second in a series of articles highlighting the achievements of the PSI 2005–2010

    • Target selection

      Target choice is coordinated between the PSI centers to achieve PSI goals and prevent redundancy.

    • Servers and databases

      Tracking the progress of all the PSI targets requires sophisticated databases.

    • Modeling methods

      The Protein Structure Initiative has made a significant contribution to improving the accuracy of structure-prediction methods.

    • Annotating proteins

      Now that efficient high-throughput production of protein structures is established, the challenge is to identify the function.
