Biochemical Information & Annotation Specialist (Biocurator)

Deposition/Biocuration Services support Data Depositors who submit the results of their structural studies of biological macromolecules to the PDB. All data deposited undergo expert review. Each structure is examined for self-consistency, standardized using controlled vocabularies, cross-referenced with other biological data resources, and validated for scientific/technical accuracy.

Biocurators communicate daily with members of the deposition community, and annotate, publicly release, and update entries in the PDB archive.
