Structural Biology Databases

A biological macromolecule's function is known by the chemical and physical properties of its three‐dimensional (3D) structure. Concerning this, one should know the structure of a biomolecule which is very important if we want to know the living systems and diseases. A database is a structured combination of data. In the field of structural biology immense research is being done and as the result, huge data is being produced. To store the data in an organized manner, bioinformatics databases are used. Many databases are designed so that the biological data can be stored such as sequence databases, signaling database,  structure database, etc. The Protein database(PDB) which is a crystallographic database is used for 3D structural data of larger biomolecules. The advancement in technologies had been considered in the further development of the PDB and in the structural specialty and structural characteristic databases that have also evolved. The mainly used databases are Electron Microscopy Data Bank, Protein Structure Classification Database (CATH), Structural Classification of Protein (SCOP) and Protein Data Bank (PDB).
