Virtual Deep Dive into Computed Structure Model Exploration at

Tuesday, April 30 at April 30, 2024
9:00-10:00 AM Pacific | 12:00-1:00PM Eastern.

Join us as we demonstrate how serves as your gateway to structural data Exploration. This event will equip you with the knowledge of how to use features to navigate 3D predicted protein structures in the context of experimentally-determined PDB structures.

Registration is required for the Zoom meeting information, but attendance is at no charge.  Please sign up at
