Tools that enhance interoperability:



BMRBxTool converts NMR-STAR data into XML format (BMRB/XML). Schema of the BMRB/XML (BMRB/XML Schema) has been translated from the current NMR-STAR Dictionary using mmCIF Dictionary Suite provided by RCSB PDB.

BMRBxTool generates qualified XML documents by programmed remediation, and reports validation errors against the XML schema. By using scripts bundled with the tool, XML documents can be updated for both new entries and revised ones.

Please refer to the README file for installation and usage.
