Dear colleagues,

I would like to draw your attention to a notification from the wwPDB partners 
about "Deposition and Release of PDB Entries Containing Large Structures" - 


There are major changes afoot in the way large structures are handled in the 
PDB, as well as in the deposition and annotation procedures and software used 
by the wwPDB sites. This is of immediate relevance for depositors and users of 
large structures, but also for software developers and anyone who routinely 
processes the entire PDB archive or its weekly releases (bioinformatics 
resources, etc.). From 2014, it will affect essentially everyone who deposits, 
uses or processes PDB entries.

If you have any questions about the new deposition system or the procedures for 
handling large structures or any of the other changes, please contact: 
info from wwpdb.org

Please pass on this information to anyone likely to be affected by the upcoming 
changes. Thanks!

On behalf of the Worldwide Protein Data Bank,

--Gerard Kleywegt
