submitted by: Phil
This is lecture 4 from a graduate student class in structural bioinformatics offered at UCSD see http://www.sdsc.edu/pb/edu/pharm201/ The topic is "Know How Best to represent Your Data." Historically the PDB format expresses the Lingua Franca of structural bioinformatics, but it has serious flaws. These will be explored and understood in the context of one replacement - mmCIF. Goal: To understand why good data representation is important.
