F1000 Posters

Provider: F1000
Contents: , , , , , ,
Access Level: ,
Descriptions: F1000Posters is an open-access repository of posters and slides in biology and medicine. Most are the normally ephemeral products of conference presentations, representing preliminary, unpublished research. F1000 gives this valuable and unique work a permanent home and makes it a resource for all. This provides a mutual benefit for authors and the scientific community, affording an opportunity to share findings and thus further develop ideas and research. More than 5,000 posters have been deposited here as of 2013, in a wide range of biological and medical fields and specialties. Also includes a list of upcoming conferences.

Protein Data Bank: An Information Portal to Biological Macromolecular Structures

Provider: RCSB (Research Collaboratory for Structural Bioinformatics)
Contents: , , , , , , , , ,
Access Level: ,
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.
