The goal of the Nucleic Acid Database Project (NDB) is to archive and distribute structural information about nucleic acids. The NDB was founded in 1992 by Helen M. Berman, Rutgers University, Wilma K. Olson, Rutgers University, and David Beveridge, Wesleyan University.
The NDB Project is funded by the National Institutes of Health and has been funded by National Science Foundation and the Department of Energy in the past.
