The process for requesting determination of protein structures is outlined on the CSGID and SSGCID websites.
Criteria for structure selection considers the properties and importance of the protein, availability of genomic or cDNA from the target organism, how determination of its structure will benefit the scientific community and inclusion on the NIAID Category A-C priority lists and organisms causing emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases.
Protein structures determined at the Centers are deposited into the Protein Data Bank (PDB), through which they are freely available to the public. The two Centers have agreed to meet certain structure completion metrics for deposition of their structures into PDB. For details on these criteria please see http://www.csgid.org/csgid/cake/pages/sg_metrics.
Peptides and other molecular constructs generated by the Centers will be distributed by the BEI Resources Repository (BEI).
