The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) has established a new branch within its Division of Cell Biology and Biophysics. Named the Structural Genomics and Proteomics Technology Branch ( /About/Overview/pages/CBB.aspx#sgpt), the unit will support studies that take a genomics or computational approach to determining protein structures and functions. Such research includes the development of high-throughput methods for protein structure determination, bioinformatics as it relates to the analysis of protein structures en masse and the development of mass spectroscopy and other tools for the rapid analysis of biological molecules.

The branch is responsible for monitoring the research centers and research grants associated with the NIGMS Protein Structure Initiative (PSI), which is described at /Initiatives/PSI/. This responsibility includes developing a database of model structures and a repository for the distribution of materials resulting from the PSI.
