Descriptions:  "The RCSB (Research Collaboratory for Structural Bioinformatics) is dedicated to improving our understanding of the function of biological systems through the study of the 3-D structure of biological macromolecules. RCSB members work cooperatively and equally through joint grants and subsequently provide free public resources and publications to assist others and further the fields of bioinformatics and biology."  Protein Data Bank (PDB) curates and annotates data according to agreed-upon standards and is a member of the ww (world wide) PDB. Use this database to perform simple and advanced searches based on sequence, structure and function annotations, and to visualize, download, and analyze molecules. The database is primarily for researchers, but the site also includes an entire section (PDB101) of information quite accessible enough for educational purposes. Check out the "Molecule of the Month" feature. The extensive archive contains information about experimentally-determined structures of proteins, nucleic acids, and complex assemblies.  As with many scientific databases, a personal log-in affords access to more features. The database is managed by Rutgers and University of California San Diego.

SJR- SCImago Journal and Country Rank

Provider: SCImago
Contents: , ,
Access Level: ,
Descriptions: Based on data indexed in SCOPUS, SJR graphs a number of metrics on scientific publications and publishing. Some unique aspects of the journal analysis include: proportion of cited to uncited/citable to uncitable articles; percentage of a journal's articles that are indicative of research resulting from international collaboration; ranking of countries and regions of the world according to publication output and citation; and an interactive map feature that generates graphic co-citation networks among disciplines, by country and time period. The opening page of SCImago sums it up: "Rank - Analyze - Compare - Visualize."

Structure (NCBI)

Provider: National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI)
Contents: , , ,
Access Level: ,
Descriptions: The NCBI Structure Group, a part of the Computational Biology Branch of NCBI, developed this suite of four free molecular and protein databases, each of which is itself made up of several others, and all of which can be searched individually. Macromolecular Structures, Conserved Domains, Small Molecules, and Biological Systems are the four main resources here- tools designed to facilitate discovery of sequence, function and structure associations. The tab labeled "Discover" does a good job of explaining how to use the Structure databases and how to access various facets of information on a molecule or protein from any point in NCBI's many resources.
