Proteopedia: an Online Encyclopedia of Interactive 3-D Macromolecules

Proteopedia, a new collaborative Web site, is offering not only text 
descriptions of proteins and other biomacromolecules related to biological functions 
and disease, but also interactive 3-D images.

On the Web site, the 3-D images come with a descriptive text that contains 
hyperlinks. Clicking on the links changes the images to display what is being 
explained in the text. This format aims to make the complex structural 
information comprehensible to everybody.

Proteopedia’s seed material is the entries on each of the more than 50,000 
records in the Protein Data Bank. Members of the scientific community are 
encouraged to register to be able to edit and expand existing pages, or create new 

The wiki Web resource was developed by researchers at the Weizmann Institute 
of Science, in Israel, the University of Massachusetts, and the University of 
Maryland, who described their project in an article in Genome Biology. —Maria
