Theoretical Model depositions in Protein Data Bank are no longer accepted: Where do we stand now?


Start October 15, 2006, theoretical Model depositions in Protein Data Bank are no longer accepted: Where do we stand now? What do you think of the theoretical structure prediction henceforth?



Comment please!

I don't think that we will no longer be introduced to theoretical models in deciphering Structural Biology research. Perhaps, we could employ more heuristic approach in exploiting the models to the bench work.


Remain,

ya its a draw back for structural biologists especially to young crystallographers..because in this competetive environment if a person crystallizes an important protein and doesnt publish it for couple of weeks he loses the golden oppertunity as someone scores the goal and publishes it........the problem arises when they crystallize using metal complex or drugs...its hard to get them but they can atleast try dock the unbinded protein with ligand and publish the insilico work therby getting regognition but this road is lost now and they are in jeopardy......
