A computer algorithm that identifies similar protein 3-dimensional structures. Structure neighbors for every structure in MMDB are pre-computed and accessible via links on the MMDB Structure Summary pages.
Extension of the Influenza Virus Resource to other organisms, providing an interface to download sequence sets of selected viruses; analysis tools, including virus-specific BLAST pages; and genome annotation pipelines (in progress).
The NLM Visible Human Project® has created publicly-available complete, anatomically detailed, three-dimensional representations of a human male body and a human female body. Specifically, the VHP provides a public-domain library of cross-sectional cryosection, CT, and MRI images obtained from one male cadaver and one female cadaver. The Visible Man data set was publicly released in 1994 and the Visible Woman in 1995.
Whole Genome Shotgun (WGS) projects are genome assemblies of incomplete genomes or incomplete chromosomes of prokaryotes or eukaryotes that are generally being sequenced by a whole genome shotgun strategy. WGS projects may be annotated, but annotation is not required. NCBI has a Prokaryotic Genomes Annotation Pipeline that may be requested at the time the genome files are submitted to GenBank. This pipeline generates a submission-ready annotated file that is posted back to the submitter for review and which the submitter could edit prior to data release.
