CD-ROM Information
PDB releases are available on CD-ROM in ISO 9660 format. 
The layout of files on the CD-ROM mirrors the PDB UNIX tape 
distribution and uses the aa, ab, ac, ..., zz subdirectories. The 
entry files are ASCII format and are readable by software able to 
process text files.

PDB-Shell, a facility for Windows users to access and display 
structures from the PDB database, is available on our CD-ROM. 
PDB-Shell allows the user to search the database for various cri-
teria such as ident code, accession date, compound name and 
author (see article on page 7 on the latest PDB-Shell update). 

The PDB CD-ROM also includes the MAGE and PREKIN struc-
ture display and manipulation software by David Richardson and 
Jane Richardson of Duke University  [The Kinemage: A Tool for 
Scientific Communication. Protein Science 1, 3-9 (1992)] in both 
Windows and Macintosh versions.
