A snapshot of the PDB archive (ftp://ftp.wwpdb.org) as of January 1, 2018 has been added to ftp://snapshots.wwpdb.org and ftp://snapshots.pdbj.org. Snapshots have been archived annually since 2005 to provide readily identifiable data sets for research on the PDB archive.
The directory 20190101 includes the 147,610 experimentally-determined structure and experimental data available at that time. Atomic coordinate and related metadata are available in PDBx/mmCIF, PDB, and XML file formats. The date and time stamp of each file indicates the last time the file was modified. The snapshot is 1,529 GB.
A variety of PDB statistics are available; including the distribution of structures released per year, and refinement software used. Visualization of PDB Data Distribution by Enzyme Classification allows users to interactively explore the enzyme classes in the PDB.
The 3D View at RCSB.org offers options for macromolecular-ligand interactions and X-ray electron density maps using NGL. Ligand interaction viewing options include hydrogen bonds, hydrophobic contacts, halogen bonds, pi interactions, and metal interactions. A 3D View User Guide is available.
NGL displays 2fo-fc (blue mesh/surface) and fo-fc (red/green mesh/surface) maps in the context of the structural model for X-ray crystallographic structures. Electron density maps combine the structural model (coordinates) and the experimentally-collected data from an X-ray structure determination and serve to represent the fit of the model to the data. Even in the best quality structures, there are areas of poor electron density, which may represent sections of the model that exist in multiple conformations. For more information, see the User Guide or learn more about Structure Factors and Electron Density at PDB-101.
