Note on referencing the PDB

Hi Motomitsu, to avoid repeating the CAZy database, I think it is best if we avoid long lists of PDB references like "Bifidobacterium longum (PDB 2ZUS, 2ZUT, 2ZUU, 2ZUV, 2ZUW)". The reader can find all this information via the CAZy DB, so the list doesn't provide new information; the reader would have to click on each link to find out what the difference between the structures are. Rather, I would suggest that you might link to one key structure, and describe that it has be solved in complex with X, Y, & Z. Of course, you don't have to limit the links to only one structure, if there are several which are key. If this is the case, the novelty of each structure should be highlighted in the text.

p.s. Shinya, I see you are watching this page, which is why I left the comment here. You might want to have all your authors turn on the watch function for their pages.

Hi Harry. Is it OK now? ShinyaFushinobu 12:05, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

Hi Shinya, Yes, I think that's better. I feel that in CAZypedia we generally want to avoid long lists of data (esp. sequences or structures) without some distillation of the key points (that's really the "problem" with CAZY DB - lots of data, but where to start?). Again, it's OK to use more than one link if there are multiple important structures, but each link should, as a general rule, include a description of what the reader will get if (s)he clicks it. You may want to check this in the other pages you are curating.
