PDB available for FTP *temporarily* from the Gene-Server
dbd at THEORY.BCHS.UH.EDU
Fri Aug 28 17:57:52 EST 1992
The PDB coordinate files (pdbxxx.ent) are available from the
UH Gene-server via anonymous FTP (ftp.bchs.uh.edu, 188.8.131.52)
These files are compressed, so you will need a version of uncompress
to convert them to readable text files. Be sure to FTP them in
These files are from the "PDB CD Sampler, Summer 1992" and will be
available ONLY between 5PM and 9AM Central time weekdays, but
full time on weekends. You will get a surprise if you try to FTP
the whole directory.
They will also only be available until the PDB gets its own,
comprehensive FTP site running, some time in the fall.
The ftp area contains ONLY the coordinate files; no index files are
available here. Also no "pre-release" coordinates are here: see the
PDB's ftp area for that. Specific entries should be looked up using
the PDB's WAIS server then fetched from the Gene-Server via FTP.
See the file "advisory.doc" for important re-distribution information.
Part of it is:
IT IS A COMMON GOAL OF THE NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION, THE
NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH, AND THE DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY TO HAVE
THE RESULTS OF WORK WHICH THEY SUPPORT MADE AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC
AND DISSEMINATED AS WIDELY AS POSSIBLE. THE PROTEIN DATA BANK
DATABASE IS BEING MADE AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC IN FURTHERANCE OF
THAT COMMON OBJECTIVE. IT SHOULD BE NOTED, HOWEVER, THAT IT IS
IMPROPER FOR ANY RECIPIENT OF THE PROTEIN DATA BANK DATABASE TO
OFFER SAID COMPUTER FILES, MAGNETIC TAPES, MICROFICHE, LISTINGS, OR
ANY FURTHER PROTEIN DATA BANK PRODUCT OR COPIES THEREOF FOR SALE AS
A COMMERCIAL ITEM.
Remember, this is temporary and will be removed if abused. All FTP
transactions are logged.
