WP4 – Latest news

May 2022: The first WP4 data management survey has been completed.

 

There have been several efforts to create standardised databases in the biophysical data management area. Some examples are:

Instruct-ERIC: A pan-European research infrastructure for structural biology. https://instruct-eric.eu/

SCORPION: Free online repository of protein-ligand complexes which have been structurally resolved and thermodynamically characterised. https://desertsci.com/products/scorpion/

PDB-Dev: Prototype archiving system for structural models. https://pdb-dev.wwpdb.org/
