Resources for Researchers

  • Molecular Visualization Software
    • Eric Martz's site for Chime, Protein Explorer, and RasMol software for looking at macromolecular structure and its relation to function
  • NIST Chemistry Webbook
    • This site provides thermochemical, thermophysical, and ion energetics data compiled by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) under the Standard Reference Data Program.
  • NMRDB:  A freely available web-based resource for NMR prediction
    • This site can be used to predict 1H NMR for compounds. drawn via the web-based interface.  Start by pressing the "NMR Predictor" link, then press "draw molecule" to open a Java-based molecular drawing program.  When the molecule is drawn corrrectly, press the "submit" button.
  • Protein Data Bank
    • The Protein Data Bank (PDB), operated by the Research Collaboratory for Structural Bioinformatics (RCSB), is the single international repository for the processing and distribution of 3-D macromolecular structure data primarily determined experimentally by X-ray crystallography and NMR.
  • Proteopedia:  Life in 3D
    • The proteopedia project, hosted in Israel, is a collaborative 3D encyclopedia of proteins and macromolecules, that visually demonstrates the structure and function of these species using literature X-ray crystallographic data.
  • BenchFly
    • A website dedicated to documenting and sharing scientific protocols by videotaped media.
