The Biological Macromolecule Crystallization Database (BMCD) is described. The database includes entries for all classes of biological macromolecules for which diffraction-quality crystals have been obtained. These include proteins, protein–protein complexes, nucleic acids, nucleic acid–nucleic acid complexes, protein–nucleic acid complexes and viruses. The use of the BMCD as a tool for facilitating the development of screens for general or specific classes of macromolecules is illustrated for endonucleases.
