FunPDBe: Community-driven enrichment of PDB data
Structural and functional annotations
What is FunPDBe
FunPDBe is a project of the Protein Data Bank in Europe - Knowledge Base (PDBe-KB) with the goal to create an integrated and accessible resource of structural and functional annotations for macromolecular structure data in the Protein Data Bank (PDB). It is a collaboration between the PDBe-KB and world-leading providers of structural bioinformatics data.
The goal of FunPDBe
The project promotes interoperability, comparative analysis and exchange of structural and functional annotations by implementing common data standards and infrastructure to collect these enhanced annotations. PDBe-KB, of which FunPDBe is a flagship project, aims to significantly increase the impact of structural data globally by implementing a central sustainable data resource and a uniform data access mechanism (via FTP and REST API) for distribution of these valuable functional and structural annotations, developed by researchers. The data is to be made accessible via web interface by developing re-usable web components.
How to deposit data
PDBe-KB is open to deposition of annotations from potential collaborating data resource or scientific software developers. Please contact PDBe-KB for more details.
