Structural Biology Databases

Structural Biology Databases

A biological macromolecule's function is known by the chemical and physical properties of its three‚Äźdimensional (3D) structure. For this one should know the structure of a biomolecule which is very helpful if we want to understand the living systems and diseases. A database is a structured collection of data. In the field of structural biology enormous research is being done and as the result, massive data is being produced. In order to pile the data in an organized manner, bioinformatics databases are used. Many databases are created so that the biological data can be stored such as sequence databases, signaling database,  structure database, etc. The Protein database(PDB) which a crystallographic database is used for 3D structural data of larger biomolecules.The advancement in technologies had been reflected in the further development of the PDB and in the structural speciality and structural characteristic databases that have also evolved. In the field of structural biology, the mainly used databases are Protein Data Bank (PDB), Electron Microscopy Data Bank, Protein Structure Classification Database (CATH) and Structural Classification of Protein (SCOP).
