PSI-Nature Structural Genomics Knowledgebase

A free resource is providing insight into the world of protein structures. The PSI-Nature Structural Genomics Knowledgebase (PSI-SGKB) is hosted by Rutgers University in the USA. It was first established in spring 2008 but has now been re-launched in collaboration with Nature Publishing Group (NPG).

The PSI-SGKB is described as a continually-updated gateway to research data and other resources from the PSI. NPG also contributes editorial content to help researchers stay informed about developments in structural biology and structural genomics.

‘One of the overarching goals of the PSI is to enable scientists interested in a particular protein family to obtain a relevant structure that can guide functional or disease-related studies,’ said Jeremy Berg, director of the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, the component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) that developed the PSI. ‘The PSI-SGKB is a portal to the wealth of resources available for speeding discoveries about these molecules so vital to our health.’
