Molecular Modeling Database 

INFORMATICS

A database of 3-dimensional biomolecular structures derived from X-ray crystallography and NMR spectroscopy.

The MMDB provides experimentally resolved structures of proteins, RNA, and DNA derived from the Protein Data Bank (PDB), with value-added features such as explicit chemical graphs, computationally identified 3D domains (compact substructures) that are used to identify similar 3D structures, as well as links to literature, similar sequences, information about chemicals bound to the structures, and more. These connections make it possible to find 3D structures for homologs of a protein sequence of interest, then interactively view the sequence-structure relationships, active sites, bound chemicals, journal articles, etc.
