Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Which macromolecular structure formats does BioJava support?
A: Currently BioJava supports parsing macromolecular structures in PDB, MMCIF and, as of version 5+, MMTF. The library also allows conversion between the formats through the same internal representation as Structure objects.

Q: How often are new versions of BioJava released?
A: There is not a fixed schedule for BioJava releases. Minor versions are released when there are important bug fixes to include, and as a fact we have released two major versions in the last six years.

Q: I love the library, how can I support you?
A: Thanks! We are simple people, so just consider giving us a star in the GitHub repository and citing one of our publications if it was useful in your research.
