Protein Data Bank releases 100,000th structure

(14 May 2014) The Worldwide Protein Data Bank (wwPDB) has released its 100,000th biological molecular structure to the community. Established in 1971, this central, public archive of experimentally-determined protein and nucleic acid structures has reached this important milestone thanks to the efforts of structural biologists all over the world. The Wellcome Trust is a supporter of the Protein Data Bank.  

The PDB contains and supports online access to more than 100,000 structures of biological macromolecules and complexes. The resource is accessed hundreds of millions of times every year by researchers, students, and educators wishing to explore how different proteins are related to one another, to clarify biological mechanisms and to develop new medicines.
