Summary

Scientists who crack protein structures and colleagues who want to decipher what these proteins do are on the verge of a watershed agreement that would usher structural biology into the genomic era. The carefully crafted guidelines are designed to help coordinate international financing of publicly funded protein structure efforts and ensure prompt release of structure data so that no team has an unfair advantage in working out the functions of unknown proteins.
