Protein Circular Dichroism
| | |
Dr. Lee Whitmore, the developer of the PCDDB and the DichroWeb server, who has worked with the Wallace/Janes groups on tools for CD spectroscopy for the past >15 years, will be leaving Birkbeck and the project on 31 May 2018. He has not only provided advice and information to users online but has also been a major participant/lecturer in CD meetings and workshops in the UK and around the world, and at the SRCD meetings in Beijing (2009) and Germany (2015), where many users will have met him. We wish him all the best in his future endeavours.
Accession codes updated.
After consultation with our International Scientific Advisory Board, we changed our accession numbering system on 1 March 2011.
The searching facility will alias any old PCDDBid codes to their new counterparts and we give a complete look-up table
