Hi, netters,

I would appreciate any information on the following questions:

1. Is there any text file which explains the individual entries in the PDB
database available on the ftp site The current entries are just
names such as pdb8888.ent.Z with no description at all. It would be helpful if
one can know the possible identity of the entry before attempting to retrieve the

2. Is there any description of the parameters within the individual entries? How
can one get information about the meaning of individual columns of data for the
atomic information?

3. Is there any software that can interpret the data from individual entries and
make a graphical presentation?

Any help will be appreciated!
