EMBL-EBI’s Macromolecular Structure Database

Filed under: Bioinformatics, Science — cupton @ 12:57 pm

Somehow I managed to get signed up for the electronic version of:
OBBeC® Life Science Computing & Bioinformatics Magazine

I’m not really a big fan of electronic books and mags, but I thought I’d give it a try (beats getting a paper copy in the mail).

There’s a nice 4 page review of EMBL-EBI’s Macromolecular Structure Database (issue 12 p24).
It was easy to read on screen, and could quickly print off the review to hand around the lab.

You can subscribe to the mag here!

The issue also has a review of Leopard (the next version of OS X) and the new Apple X server smile.gif
