The following table was taken from a random entry in PDBWiki - it shows just some of the diverse array of protein structure databases that exist. I put it here so that we can extract the important database for the article.

Feel free to hack this table to bits / bare bones. --Dan|(talk) 21:57, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Title of this page?[edit]

Should this page be Protein structure databases? --Dan|(talk) 22:04, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Good start! Title is good, but many databases are missing. You should look here, here, and perhaps a couple of other reviews. The article should also include MODBASE, SCOP, membrane protein databases (such as PDBTM) and others, but it is better to consult with reviews. I can look at this later.Biophys (talk) 04:21, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Thanks very much for the positive feedback. I'll have a look at the links provide. --Dan|(talk) 13:34, 6 April 2008 (UTC)
Btw, I am quite familiar with the database issue of the NAR... I created MetaBase :-D --Dan|(talk) 20:23, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Right, I added MODBASE, SCOP, PDBTM and some others. The page is begging to grow beyond my ability to look at it all clearly (lame I know), but another pair of eyes on the page at this point would be great. Not sure if I should continue to wikify the database description text, as it may become a bit too confusing. Also a table is probably needed at this stage rather than a description list. --Dan|(talk) 20:23, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Suggestions of pages to add?[edit]

Please add suggestions here, or just be bold and add them to the page. Looking here, Category:Bioinformatics_databases, I can immediately identify;

BioModels Database
Database of Molecular Motions
Orientations of Proteins in Membranes database
Structural Classification of Proteins. These are databases of 3D structures. Biophys (talk) 05:43, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

Protein structure databasesProtein structure database — Singular. Last Lost (talk) 16:43, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

Very weak support, because normally we use singular titles, though this article seems to be largely a list of such databases rather than information about the concept of "p.s. database" itself, so I'm not particularly unhappy with the current title.--Kotniski (talk) 10:57, 22 November 2010 (UTC)
