PDB Connector nodes - A Warning!

To all users of the PDB connector nodes (both versions):

We have discovered that the people over at RCSB PDB have changed the format of the result supplied in the "Structure Authors" field, such that individual authors are now separated be '#', e.g. for Structure ID 2WI7 (one of our test cases!):

Brough, P.A.#Barril, X.#Borgognoni, J.#Chene, P.#Davies, N.G.M.#Davis, B.#Drysdale, M.J.#Dymock, B.#Eccles, S.A.#Garcia-Echeverria, C.#Fromont, C.#Hayes, A.#Hubbard, R.E.#Jordan, A.M.#Jensen, M.R.#Massey, A.#Merrett, A.#Padfield, A.#Parsons, R.#Radimerski, T.#Raynaud, F.I.#Robertson, A.#Roughley, S.D.#Schoepfer, J.#Simmonite, H.#Sharp, S.Y.#Surgenor, A.#Valenti, M.#Walls, S.#Webb, P.#Wood, M.#Workman, P.#Wright, L.M.
 

Previously, multiple authors were comma-separated, and so the same result would have been returned as:

Brough, P.A., Barril, X., Borgognoni, J., Chene, P., Davies, N.G.M., Davis, B., Drysdale, M.J., Dymock, B., Eccles, S.A., Garcia-Echeverria, C., Fromont, C., Hayes, A., Hubbard, R.E., Jordan, A.M., Rugaard-Jensen, M., Massey, A., Merret, A., Padfield, A., Parsons, R., Radimerski, T., Raynaud, F.I., Robertson, A., Roughley, S.D., Schoepfer, J., Simmonite, H., Surgenor, A., Valenti, M., Walls, S., Webb, P., Wood, M., Workman, P., Wright, L.M.

This means that workflows using the nodes might need further downstream modification.  Unfortunately, this is totally beyond out control, being the results of the data request from the RCSB webservices.

Yours,

Steve

An update - as of v1.7.0, this issue has been resolved as the structure authors are now returned as collection cells -see https://tech.knime.org/forum/vernalis/new-release-170 for details.  Obviously, we cant promise that at some point the service won't change deliminator again, but if / when it does, we can relatively simply fix back to a consistent-with-previous-versions collection cell again.
