		Announcement: PARVATI V1.0

PARVATI is a web-based validation/analysis tool for macromolecular 
structures refined with individual anisotropic atomic displacement 
parameters.   Normally this means atomic or near-atomic resolution 
protein structures being refined with SHELXL or REFMAC.  

Any PDB file containing ANISOU records can be up-loaded anonymously 
via the web for automated processing. The resulting analysis is fed 
back to the originating web browser.

The June issue of Acta D contains a paper describing the use of the
Parvati web server to analyze the distribution of atomic anisotropy 
in the set of near-atomic resolution structures currently available 
in the PDB.
