Merges data about protein structures from twelve data sources such as PDB, SCOP, KEGG and GO. Columba is a relational database that focuses on assisting researchers in generating sets of protein structures sharing annotations. It also includes information relative to structural and sequence-based classification schemes, functional annotation, secondary structure elements, and participation in metabolic pathways. Searches can be made by full text search, data source and or by specific attributes.
