The Protein Structure Initiative (PSI), which ended in July 2015, was a national effort to assemble a large collection of protein structures in a high-throughput operation. Knowledge gained could help researchers better understand the function of proteins, learn how altered structures can contribute to disease and identify new targets for drug development.
