We are pleased to announce that the Research Collaboratory for Structural
Bioinformatics (RCSB), a consortium composed of Rutgers, the State University
of New Jersey; the University of California at San Diego; and the National
Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), has received a five-year award
from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Department of Energy (DOE),
and two units of the National Institutes of Health: the National Institute of
General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) and the National Library of Medicine (NLM) to
operate and significantly extend the capabilities of the Protein Data Bank

Currently maintained by Brookhaven National Laboratory, the PDB's change in 
management will be transparent and seamless as it moves to the RCSB with the 
addition of new capabilities for searching and for improving the consistency 
and content of existing and future depositions.

The official announcement, FAQ and grant proposal are available at
http://www.rcsb.org/.  This site will provide information about the status and
capabilities of the new PDB.
