On January 1, 2017, the PDB archive contained 136,472 experimentally-determined 3D structures of proteins, nucleic acids, and complex assemblies that help students and researchers understand all aspects of biomedicine and agriculture, from protein synthesis to health and disease. PDB data were downloaded from wwPDB FTP and websites >628 million times last year, with website resources at rcsb.org visited each month by an average of 448,925 unique visitors, with >1 million unique visitors accessing the site annually from around the world.
2017 was the year of many RCSB PDB and wwPDB milestones and events, including:
In celebration of the new year, RCSB PDB has published a 2018 calendar highlighting the Mechanisms of Antimicrobial Resistance. This calendar was created in part by undergraduate researchers Jenna Abyad and Priscilla Salcedo, as described in this newsletter’s Education Corner. Mechanisms of Bacterial Resistance to Beta-lactam Antibiotics will be the focus of the 2018 Video Challenge. The complete details for this event will be announced in February at PDB-101.
Download the calendar as a PDF or access these images and more from PDB-101.
