Development and support for this website has been discontinued since 2015.

The Jena Library of Biological Macromolecules (JenaLib) is aimed at a better dissemination of information on three-dimensional biopolymer structures with an emphasis on visualization and analysis.

It provides access to all structure entries deposited at the Protein Data Bank (PDB) or at the Nucleic Acid Database (NDB).

In addition, basic information on the architecture of biopolymer structures is available.

The JenaLib intends to fulfill both scientific and educational needs.
