Administrative Supplement Request in Response to PA-20-272
Parent Award Identifier: 1R01GM133198
Parent Award Title: PDB Management by the Research Collaboratory for Structural Bioinformatics
Parent Award Principal Investigator: Stephen K. Burley, M.D., D.Phil.
Supplement Request: Containerization of RCSB PDB Backend Services for RCSB.org
In its role as a core NIH data repository, the Research Collaboratory for Structural Bioinformatics Protein Data
Bank (RCSB PDB) is committed to the best practices articulated by the FAIR and TRUST principles. Established
in 1971 as the first open-access digital data repository in biology, the PDB has been a leading exemplar of FAIR.
RCSB PDB was also an early adopter in securing CoreTrustSeal certification and advocating for the TRUST
principles. In this supplement, we are requesting funding to containerize RCSB PDB Backend Services for
RCSB.org to improve user access with scalability of these services using Docker Containers and Kubernetes
Orchestration hosted on RCSB PDB-owned on premises hardware.
