Molecule News and Molecule of the Day
This site is under constant construction
The molecule of the day is: ATP
ATP, Adenosine 5'-triphosphate, is known as the energy molecule of the cell,
due to the fact that the cell stores much of its energy in second
phosphodiester bond, which is the di-phoshate bond furthest to the left in
the figure shown at right. Proteins are able to release the energy in this
bond in order to do the work of the cell, and the coordination of a
magnesium ion is required to do this. Adenosine receptor is a noted
target of caffeine, which is similar in structure to adenosine, and it
probably affects other adenosine-related activities as well.
In addition to the key role that adenosine plays in cellular energy
metabolism, it plays many other crucial roles in the
cell, such as; in signalling pathways, and as part of the fundamental
structure of RNA and DNA (in the deoxy form). It is literally part of the
the stucture that encodes the genetic secrets of life, which are now
beginning to be known in great detail, by which we can begin to increase
longevity. Adenosine is also part of the signal
by which the cell recognizes when to replicate its genes, when to make
protein, when to propogate, but also when not to, when to live,
and when to die. This purine class molecule is truly gate and gate keeper.

A terminal screenshot has been added to the right sidebar,
in order to show the kind
of code that is being used to generate the Molecules directory indices. All
inquiries and suggestions are welcome.

Reaction to our website has been quite positive and encouraging, but people are anxious to
see structures with improved stereochemistry. We have received many suggestions about how
to make that happen faster. For the time being, we are experiencing the
best structure viewing results with RasMOL. Name extraction and structure file linking
jobs are underway, which is an indication that we are still in a preliminary phase. Google
spiders more almost everyday, and past experience indicates that the search capability will
become very useful indeed! Here is some secret mumbo jumbo. I'm afraid that my Japanese
or Korean is broken at best ;-}. Enjoy!

Several new indices have been added to our sidebar, notably;
current index by name, and
gallery by name. These are large indices, but also
vastly incomplete, and work is underway to improve them.
A list of bloggers who have mentioned the site, with links in their blogs, is now in the front sidebar,
although only one is known thus far. Due to the vastness of the scale,
many of these things will be divided out and buried a little deeper
eventually, but they can be showcased now, and they are a good survey.

Some facts: The Molecules website contains more than
4 million small molecule structure files in pdb format,
and molecular graphics representations. About 50
million molecules are still in the pipe, and they are expected
to appear here over the course of the next few weeks and months.
The pdb format is readable by common FOSS molecule viewer software,
such as RasMol and PyMOL.
In due course, we plan to provide high quality structures via
energy minimization refinement, and additional resources.
Molecules@gnu-darwin.org is founded
in the spirit of free software, open source, and public access.
It is hoped that access to these files will be a wonderful community
resource for science education, research, and entertainment as well.
We are looking for investment, funding, or sponsorship in order to expedite and expand this work, and lead the field,
with an eye towards an advanced, complete, synthetic, structural, and informatical bioorganome.
Meanwhile, the site is already an exceptional lab resource,
and molecular catalog, providing the means and building blocks
towards additional novel structures. We aim to be the best.
The structural biology, protein crystallography, and molecular graphics talent that is
building the Molecules archive is available to work for you in
a contract or consulting arrangement. Wide-ranging expertise is available.
Molecules@gnu-darwin.org is built entirely with
free and open source
software, GNU-Darwin OS, and it is under
the aegis of
The GNU-Darwin Distribution.

We would like to build a community around this website, and we are looking for
volunteers and collaborators to help. Regarding any aspect of the work of this site, please feel free
