Integrating PDB Data with NIH Common Fund Data Resources
RCSB PDB has integrated three-dimensional structural information with 3 new resources that fall under the umbrella of the NIH Common Fund Data Resources. Ultimately, this integration is expected to enable investigation of novel biological questions, and promote a more complete understanding of human health and disease.
Relevant PDB structures are now linked to individual data in PHAROS, GTEx, and IMPC.
- PHAROS is part of the Integrating the Druggable Genome (IDG) project and presents integrated data for 3 of the most important drug target protein families: GPCRs, ion channels and kinases. Some of the data types it covers include: disease, phenotypic and ontologies such as the Drug Target Ontology.
- GTEx is a public resource for the study of tissue-specific gene expression and regulation.
- IMPC covers data related to mouse phenotypes, as part of an international effort by 19 research institutions to identify the function of every protein-coding gene in the mouse genome.
Data are accessible from individual Structure Summary pages and Advanced Search.
