A snapshot of the PDB archive (ftp://ftp.wwpdb.org) as of January 1, 2016 has been added to ftp://snapshots.wwpdb.org/. Snapshots have been archived annually since January 2005 to provide readily identifiable data sets for research on the PDB archive.
The directory 20160101 includes the 114,679 experimentally-determined coordinate files and related experimental data available at that time. Coordinate data are available in PDB, mmCIF, and XML formats. The date and time stamp of each file indicates the last time the file was modified. The snapshot is 555 GB.
RCSB PDB's top search box helps users easily and intuitively create simple text searches. It recognizes particular types of syntax, such as SMILES strings and sequences, and suggests related search options accordingly.
Typing text in the top search bar launches an interactive pop-up box that suggests possible matches that are organized by categories ranging from author name to ontology terms.
For example, autosuggestions for "bird" will suggest structures with authors whose names contain "bird" and structures from the organism bird. Users who want a simple perform a simple, non-categorized text search can press the "Go" button or keyboard return. Entering SMILES strings will suggest options to perform substructure, exact structure, or similar chemical structure searches, while typing in a sequence will offer different BLAST search options.
Simple text searches complement other RCSB PDB tools: drill down by categorized data distribution summaries, annotation-based browsing using different hierarchical trees, and combining multiple searches of specific data types with Advanced Search.
Have a list of PDB IDs you'd like to learn more about? Use Advanced Search to view these structures in the Search Results to generate reports and more.
From the Advanced Search pulldown menu, select ID(s) and Keywords > PDB ID(s). Enter the list of multiple IDs, which can be separated by commas or white space, including line breaks.
The structures can then be explored using the different query results browser views: detailed, condensed, timeline or gallery.
Users can also link directly to multiple structures in the Query Results Browser using the syntax:
This example will launch entries 1mi6 and 1mvr in the Query Result Browser; other IDs can be added to the URL:
Protein Feature View graphically summarizes a full-length protein sequence from UniProt and how it corresponds to PDB entries and annotations from external resources in different "tracks".
New tracks illustrate the quality of a protein chain as described in the wwPDB Validation Report and provide a summary of expression tags, cloning artifacts, and other mismatches.
An Overview of Protein Feature View is available, along with examples of the validation and mutation tracks.
Structure Summary pages have been redesigned to highlight high-level information available for each PDB entry, including structure classification, expression organism, and mutations. More detailed information about macromolecules, small molecules and experimental data and validation appear lower in the page.
These new Structure Summary pages also incorporate "responsive" design that can adjust the layout for mobile devices such as phones and tablets.
