Instructions for first-time users of ADIT-NMR
This is the first page you see when you go to ADIT-NMR.
At the top lefthand part of the page
there are links to the Protein Data Bank (PDB) and the BMRB homepage.
These are also at the top right-hand side of the page, along with a link to another
ADIT-NMR tutorial and a way to contact the BMRB.
Authors of macromolecular structures using NMR are strongly encouraged to deposit their
data with both the BMRB and the PDB. You will be able to deposit your at BMRB and have structural data
automatically deposited at the PDB in the near future.
The introductory page has three options for starting an editing session: 'Begin' a new session, 'Continue
Session' from one you've already started, and create a 'New Session' from a session that you've already
finished and deposited.
The latter two choices require a Restart ID, which can only be obtained by starting a new session.
ADIT-NMR assigns you a Restart ID that consists of a combination
of your computer's network identity and a unique identification number. This
Restart ID will appear on your browser's title bar. There is a 'copy and pastable' Restart ID
on the 'Deposit Data Files' page
and on the 'Help' page,
but we will talk about that later.
The pull-down menu in the new session box labels the deposition as a protein,
nucleic acid, or protein/nucleic acid combination. It is not absolutely necessary to mark
this correctly, since a more complete choice of system type will be presented in the
Once you have a Restart ID, you can use it to recall that session at any time in
the future as long as the session hasn't been deposited. This allows you to begin a session,
quit at any time, and come back to it in the future. There is no explicit logout procedure from
ADIT-NMR. You can leave the site or close the browser at any time. As long as you have saved
the Restart ID, you can get back to it.
If you've lost your Restart ID, contact
bmrb help, or call (608) 263-3291 for
If you've already deposited a session but have additional data to add to it, or need to
make changes in existing data, you can use the third deposition option and create a new
session from your previous session with the Restart ID. This is also convenient if your
group needs to make multiple depositions that have common information - author names, for
