The study of protein structure was the focus of the next two talks by UCSD's Andreas Prlic of the Protein Data Bank and Ian Kaufman representing the Center for Computational Mass Spectrometry, while the Ocean Observing Initiative Cyberinfrastructure's Matthew Arrott focused on ocean observing as a big-data science with strong dependency on high-bandwidth networking.
As of 2009, the Protein Data Bank (PDB) had almost 53,000 three-dimensional structures of protein molecules and nucleic acids.
In fact, of the 1,273 structures submitted to the Protein Data Bank in the first quarter of 2004, 84% were the result of x-ray crystallography experiments and only 13% of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, the other major technique for determining molecular structures.
